GST Registration Extension for Existing Taxpayers

The Goods and Services tax (GST) network has extended the date of GST registration or migration of existing taxpayers till the end of April, 2017. Since, many of the States have not migrated even 50% of their existing taxpayers to the GST system, the deadline has been extended to help States and Taxpayers complete the formalities in the current month prior to the July 1st, 2017 rollout. 

GST Migration

The process of migration of more than 8 million taxpayers to the GST structure started in November, 2016 with a staged migration for every state. However, after completion of the migration, most states registered migration of less than 50% of the taxpayer base and the enlistment numbers remained low. Hence, the deadline has been revised as under to accommodate more taxpayers:
