      For getting GST Registration you need Bank Statement or proof of bank account . However for opening current account banks require GST Registration as a proof of registration of Partnership firm ?

      Case newly created partnership firm engage in e- commerce activity .
      a.) Firm is not registered with registrar of firm.
      b.) I think firm is not liable to get registered under shop & establishment act &
      c.) Firm is having only PAN & Partnership Deed & Not Registered with govt. department.

      Pls suggest what to do in this case ?
