2023 (5) TMI 850 - HC - GST
Cancellation of GST registration of petitioner - bogus firm - opportunity of hearing was not given to the petitioner - violation of principles of natural justice (audi alterem partem) - HELD THAT:- Admittedly, the registration of the petitioner was cancelled on the basis of the survey dated 27.09.2019 with the report that the disclosed business place of the firm was not found and therefore, the firm is bogus. On the said basis, the registration was cancelled on 01.12.2020. The petitioner moved application for revocation of cancellation of the registration on 28.01.2021, but the same was rejected. Thereafter, on 26.04.2021, a show cause notice was issued to the petitioner to show cause as to why the revocation of cancellation of registration may not be rejected.
This Court in APPARENT MARKETING PRIVATE LIMITED. VERSUS STATE OF U.P. AND 3 OTHERS [2022 (3) TMI 493 - ALLAHABAD HIGH COURT] has held Though the notice for cancellation of registration may not be placed on a high pedestal of a jurisdictional notice, at the same time, unless the essential ingredients necessary for issuance of such notice had been specified therein at the initial stage itself, the authorities cannot be permitted to have margin or option to specify and/or improve the charge later.
Impugned order cannot be sustained - petition allowed.
