Normally at the time of registration you may intimate your intention to pay the back taxes and penalty should notbe raised. many Tribunal decision on no penalty for bona fide voluntary compliacne exists.

ST being an indirect tax should be able to collect from cuysotmer. If cusotmer is under central excise or ST then it becomes easier.
Practically cusotmers who can avil credit may reimburse the same.
SC case in All India Tax Practioners Assoication lays down that ST is a destination based consumption tax and the burden is with the utlimate receiver.
