Facts

Perfect Assayers (P.) Ltd. ("the Petitioner") has filed a writ petition against the Order-in-Original dated September 28, 2023 ("the Impugned Order") passed by the Revenue Department ("the Respondent") on the ground that the reply to Show Cause Notice dated April 27, 2023 ("the SCN") was not taken into consideration by the officers of the Respondent. The SCN was issued alleging that there is mismatch between the Petitioner GSTR-3B return and GSTR-1 statement as well as the Petitioner GSTR-3B return and auto-populated GSTR-2A.

Held

The Hon'ble Madras High Court in W.P. No. 12083 of 2024 held as under:
