Question : What is the transitional credit that can be availed on the existing stocks held by a registered person under GST, who was not required to be registered under the existing law?

Answer: In terms of Rule 117(4) of the CGST Rules, 2017 (transitional provisions) read with Section 140(3) of the CGST Act, 2017 , a registered person who was not registered under the existing law and who is not
in possession of any document evidencing payment of central excise duty in respect of the goods held in
stock, shall be allowed credit at the rate of sixty per cent on such goods which attract central tax at the
rate of nine per cent or more and forty per cent for the other goods of the central tax applicable on supply
of such goods after 01st July 2017 and the said amount shall be credited in the electronic credit ledger after
