Since the Goods and Service Tax Acts have been introduced in the country, there have been many amendments in GST Acts itself through Annual Finance Acts.  In this write up, we have compiled the various sections of CGST and IGST Acts, amended through different Finance Acts and have been passed in Parliament but have not been enacted yet, resulting have no impact on day to day activities of businesses.

Till now GST Acts have been amended through four Finance Acts i.e Finance Act, 2018, Finance (No 2) Act, 2019, Finance Act, 2020 and Finance Act 2021. From the sections of Annual Finance Acts, a few have been notified and implemented retrospectively while the others have been implemented prospectively. But there are some sections though passed in Finance Acts by the Parliament but have not been notified/enacted under GST Acts, hence are not implemented till date.
