1. Mr. Uchit Sheth, learned advocate for the petitioner has submitted that the petitioner has challenged rule 96 (10) (b) of the Central Goods and Service Tax Rules, 2017 insofar as the same has been given retrospective effect. It was pointed out that subsequently vide Notification No. 53/2018-Central Tax dated 9.10.2018, sub-rule (10) of rule 96 has been substituted, and the retrospective effect given to it, has been deleted. It was pointed out that, thereafter vide Notification No. 54/2018-Central Tax dated 9.10.2018, sub-rule (10) of rule 96 has been substituted making it applicable prospectively. It was submitted that, since the grievance of the petitioner was against the retrospective effect given to rule 96, such grievance no longer survives.
2. In the light of the above, the petition does not survive and is accordingly disposed of as having become infructuous. Notice is discharged with no order as to costs.
