W.A NO.658 OF 2020
Dated this the 18th day of June, 2020
Read Order dated 26.05.2020:-
“The appellant is a private limited company engaged in carrying specialist service of dry cleaning, providing such services to hotels, airline companies and the like. The appellant had been delaying payment of Central Goods and Services tax as also the State Goods and Services Tax from year 2017 onwards. Payments were made with long delay, on which no action was taken. However, when there was consistent default and the dues mounted uncontrollably, the department took action through the 4th respondent.
2. The 4th respondent issued show cause notice which is produced as Ext.P8 to which the appellant replied by Ext.P9 agreeing to pay off the entire overdue amounts in 12 equal monthly installments of Rs.9 lakhs each. The request was made by Ext.P9 dated 25.02.2020. There has been no deposit made, according to the learned Standing Counsel appearing for the Department. The Department hence cancelled the registration. The learned Single Judge refused to exercise discretion since the petitioner could pay the entire defaulted amounts and revive the registration.
