    In the GST enrolment portal, it is difficult to enter the Date columns of our all certificates/Date of Birth since coming scrolling one by one year only. (for ex., our company started in 1988 & cert. date also the same but for this we have to scroll slowly from 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013 like monthwise. Moreover attachment also to be done carefully (since file sizes are narrowed).
