It is submitted that with respect to the error in the reflection of such credit in its electronic account, the matter was referred to the W.P.(C) 8691/2018.

Grievance Redressal Forum of the GST Council which has noted in its minutes of meeting dated 21.08.2018 that the petitioners have a grievance which needs to be addressed.

It is highlighted that the reflection of Tran-I credit in GSTR-3 is essential as it would ultimately impact the availability of credit for the entire duration – both transitional credit and input credit for the period 01.07.2017 onwards. Learned counsel submits that unless appropriate directions are given to the respondents, it is likely to face severe adverse financial crisis because in the absence of credit, it would have to pay cash throughout the country to the tune of Rs.37 crores.

The GSTR-3B form – in the relevant table dealing with eligible ITC, talks of total ITC available; ITC reversed and the net ITC available. As the deadline for completing this form and availing the credit is 20.10.2018, the respondents are hereby directed to permit the petitioners to fill the GSTR-3 form manually in a manner, as to permit it to claim a credit, subject to the final outcome of the proceedings.

It is clarified that in the GSTR-3B form, the petitioner can claim transitional as well as the post 01.07.2017 input tax credit.
