In the realm of tax compliance, timely registration is crucial for taxpayers. However, despite successful Aadhaar authentication, some individuals encounter delays in the registration process. This article delves into the intricacies of such delays, as per Rule 8 and Rule 9 of the Central Goods and Services Tax (CGST) Rules, 2017.

Detailed Analysis

Rule 9 of the CGST Rules, 2017, outlines the procedures for verification and approval of registration applications. It specifies that if a person undergoes Aadhaar authentication as per sub-rule (4A) of Rule 8, but is flagged for detailed verification based on risk profile, the application will be processed within thirty days of submission.

Despite Aadhaar authentication, certain taxpayers may fall under the purview of Rule 9(aa), triggering the need for additional scrutiny. This could be due to various factors such as discrepancies in provided information or risk indicators identified by the common portal.

The delayed processing can lead to frustration among taxpayers, as prompt registration is essential for business operations and compliance. However, it’s crucial to understand that detailed verification is aimed at ensuring the integrity of the registration process and preventing misuse of benefits.

Furthermore, the communication from the GSTN (Goods and Services Tax Network) team assures taxpayers that necessary changes will be reflected in the online tracking module. This transparency is essential for maintaining trust and providing clarity to stakeholders throughout the registration journey.
