  1. Ram says:

    Hi, Suppose for example a tax person is qualified for registering under composition scheme and gets himself registered. At a later point of time he is under necessity to buy a product from an unregistered dealer and thereby pays tax on RCM (just only one purchase).
    In this case, he is disqualified to be in composition scheme. How this is checked and treated?
    Thank you !
