[2021 (3) TMI 524 - MADRAS HIGH COURT] to the effect that those petitioners must be permitted the benefit of rectification of errors where there is no malafides attributed to the assessee. The errors committed are clearly inadvertant and, the rectification would, in fact, enable proper reporting of the turnover and input tax credit to enable claims to be made in an appropriate fasion by the petitioner and connected assessees.
In light of the consistent view taken by the Court and in deference to the position that such matters, where an expansive view of the issue is called for, are few and far between, as on date, this Court is inclined to accept the prayer of the petitioner and issues mandamus to the respondents to do the needful to enable uploading of the rectified GSTR 1. Let the parties ensure that this exercise is completed within a period of six (6) weeks from today.
