46. Cancellation of Registration

Section 29(2) of the CGST Act provides that the proper officer may cancel the registration of a person from such date, including any retrospective date, as he may deem fit, where, –

(a) a registered person has contravened such provisions of the Act or the rules made thereunder as may be prescribed; or
(b) a person paying tax under section 10 has not furnished returns for three consecutive tax periods; or
(c) any registered person, other than a person specified in clause (b), has not furnished returns for a continuous period of six months; or
(d) any person who has taken voluntary registration under sub-section (3) of section 25 has not commenced business within six months from the date of registration; or
(e) registration has been obtained by means of fraud, wilful misstatement or suppression of facts:
Provided that the proper officer shall not cancel the registration without giving the person an opportunity of being heard.

• If cancellation of registration is permitted from anterior (earlier) date, it would lead to disruption of whole credit chain and difficulties will be faced by persons who have already availed credit.
• Dealers may not be able to file periodical returns on time due to financial hardship in paying tax. Hence, stringent times for non-filing of returns would lead to cancellation of registration, which may not be required.

• It is suggested that clause (d) be deleted
