A new SAP based system for online registration has been implemented by the Maharashtra Sales Tax Department (MSTD) from 25th May 2016. This new system provides for unified application for registration under all the acts administered by the MSTD. Before implementation of this new system the earlier system of online application and grant of registration was closed from 4th May 2016 in order to clear the pending applications in the earlier system.

However, as the system for obtaining registration was closed between 4th May 2016 and 24th May 2016, the dealers who either became eligible for registration because of crossing the registration threshold and the dealers who were desirous of obtaining voluntary registration could not apply for registration. Similarly, after the new SAP based system for online registration went live from 25th May 2016 some of the applicants could not submit their applications because of technical reasons. Hence, such applicants could not obtain Registration Certificates with the appropriate date of effect. The aggrieved applicants represented these grievances to the MSTD and requested for administrative relief for getting the desired date of effect of registration. The issues represented were examined and in order to grant the appropriate date of effect of registration to such applicants, the following instructions are issued.

2. The class of dealers who qualify for the grant of the administrative relief is mentioned in column (3), the governing conditions arc mentioned in column (4) and the administrative relief to be granted is as mentioned in column (5) of the Table below;
