In the matter of Varahamurthi Flexirub Industries (P.) Ltd. v. State Tax Officer, Squad-VII, Palakkad [W.P. (C) No. 3900 of 2021 (J) dated February 16, 2021], Varahamurthi Flexirub Industries (P.) Ltd. ('the Petitioner') received an order of confirmation of penalty from the State Tax Officer ('the Respondents'). The Petitioner had challenged the order of the Respondents in directing bank to invoke bank guarantee and to forward demand draft of value of said bank guarantee.

The Petitioner contended that as per the provisions of Sections 78 of the Central Goods and Services Act, 2017 ('the CGST Act') read with Section 107 of the CGST Act, the Petitioner had time of three months for depositing the disputed amount as per assessment order.

The Hon’ble Kerala High Court relying upon the provisions of Section 78 and Section 107 of the CGST Act directed the Respondents not to encash bank guarantee and to put forward the amount under the bank guarantee by demand draft, accordingly quashed and set aside the order. Also directed the Petitioner to continue the bank guarantee till filing of the appeal.
