The Hon'ble Delhi High Court in the case of Gulab Nagar v. Assistant Commissioner [W.P No. 3383 of 2024 dated March 06, 2024] disposed of the writ petition thereby holding that, revocation application filed by the Assessee has to be taken into consideration in case where the GST Registration has been cancelled by the Revenue Department based on incorrect field visit report. 

Facts

Gulab Nagar ("the Petitioner") filed a writ petition against order dated September 01, 2023 ("the Impugned Order") passed by the Revenue Department ("the Respondent") wherein the Petitioner GST registration has been cancelled retrospectively with effect from March 31, 2022, on the ground that Petitioner was not functioning from the address provided to GST authorities. 

Held

The Hon'ble High Court of Delhi in W.P No. 3383 of 2024 held that the entire proceedings of GST Registration cancellation are based on the field visit report which is not in relation to the Petitioner for which revocation application has been filed by the Petitioner.

The Hon'ble High Court thereafter directed the Respondent to take into consideration the revocation application filed by the Petitioner.
