    Dear Jatin,

    It seems the article needs correction.
    It is not necessary that Sales should also be more than 50 Lacs. What is necessary that consideration received should be more than 50 Lacs and it should be against sale of ANY goods other than the specified goods. It seems it any amount received after 30 Sep 2020 as sales consideration against sale of any goods (other than specified goods) even before 01 Oct 2020 or for that purpose even before 01 Apr 2020 would be covered. E.g., if goods worth Rs. 60 Lacs were sold on 31 Mar 2020 and consideration was received after 01 Oct 2020, TCS would be applicable on 10 Lacs.
