Ministry of Finance organise Special Drive Refund Fortnight from 31st May, 2018 to 14th June, 2018
Ministry of Finance has issued a press release dated 30th May, 2018 to inform about the “Special drive Refund Fortnight” to be organised from 31st day of May, 2018 to 14th day of June, 2018. All exporters are requested to come forward and avail of the opportunity to get the refunds sanctioned during this special drive. This time the “Special Drive Refund Fortnight” would facilitate all types of refund claims in which Customs, Central and State GST officers will strive to clear all GST refund applications received on or before 30.04.2018. This will include refunds of IGST paid on exports, refunds of unutilized ITC and all other GST refunds submitted in FORM GST RFD- 01A.
All claimants may note the refund application in FORM GST RFD-01A will not be processed unless a copy of the application, along with all supporting documents, is submitted to the jurisdictional tax office. Mere online submission is not sufficient.
All GST refund claimants are encouraged to approach their jurisdictional tax authority for disposal of any of their refund claims submitted on or before 30.04.2018, which are still pending. In case the jurisdiction (i.e. Centre or State) has not been defined for a particular claimant, he/she can approach either of the jurisdictional tax authorities.
All IGST refund claimants may register on ICEGATE website, if not already done, to check their refund status.
