Gst registration for a rcm liability

16 May 2019
I have been trading in potatoes. Potatoes are purchased from outside state and are sold to local consumers/retailers. Railway freight and truck freight are paid by me. Potatoes turnover is in the range of 50 to 60 lac. I think, GST is not required on potatoes. But, whether RCM is payable on freight ? If yes, Whether I will have to get registration in GST ?
Please guide me.

If the transport services are provided by any GTA (road transportation), then it is necessary to get registered to discharge the liability under RCM.
