As per Section 140 (1) of CGST Act, 2017 "a registered person, other than a person opting to pay tax under section 10, shall be entitled to take, in his electronic credit ledger, the amount of CENVAT credit of eligible duties carried forward in the return relating to the period ending with the day immediately preceding the appointed day, furnished by him under the existing law within such time and in such manner as may be prescribed.
According to Rule 117 (1) of CGST Rules, 2017 "Every registered person entitled to take credit of input tax under section 140 shall, within ninety days of the appointed day, that is 01.07.2017, submit a declaration electronically in FORM GST TRAN-1, duly signed, on the common portal specifying therein, separately, the amount of input tax credit 1[of eligible duties and taxes, as defined in Explanation 2 to section 140] to which he is entitled under the provisions of the said section.
Simiar provisions are made under State Goods and Service Act of the respective States.
Since you had not taken the credit prior to 01.07 2017 and had not shown in the prescribed returns file under VAT Act, now it is impossible to take the credit on the stock as on 30,06.2017.
Must try to file TRANS-2 now in the light of Supreme Court Order dated 27.7.22. - UNION OF INDIA & ANR. VERSUS FILCO TRADE CENTRE PVT. LTD. & ANR.
