Gentlemen / Sir / Madam


     It has been brought to the notice of this office that dealers face difficulties in obtaining  Statutory declarations/forms such as “C”, “H”, and “F” etc prescribed under C.S.T.  Act, 1956. The staff working under the Central Repository Cell, located at Ground floor of New Building, Vikrikar Bhavan, Mazgaon is also facing problems and disturbances  due to frequent visits by applicants, or their representatives. The rush and overcrowding of applicants at the Central Repository ultimately affects the efficiency of staff and hampers the issuance of the declaration forms. To over come these problems, a new system of working for Central Repository Unit in Mumbai is devised. This system is for dealers who are making manual application for obtaining statutory declarations.

2.         New System:  (a)        Under the new System the duly completed application  for statutory declarations / forms, along with copies of documents and soft copy of completed requisition form specified in earlier cirulars needs to be submitted to the Sales Tax Inspectors in the designated “Face Verification zone” on first floor only on designated days. This application shall be verified by the Sales Tax Inspectors. After the verification the endorsed application shall be accepted by the “Central Inward Clerk”. The Inward Clerk shall issue a token number (and / acknowledgement) to the applicant (which will have to be produced later for taking delivery of forms).  Such receipt of applications, process of face verification and issuance of the token number against the completed applications shall be done only on   Mondays and Wednesdays during 11.00 am to 4.00 pm. the departmental officials shall after completing the other requisite process shall Deliver the Processed/Completed Forms on Tuesdays and Thursdays of that week between 2.30 pm to 5.00 pm.    

                        (b)        The applications for cancellation / rectification of issued declaration form and issuance of duplicate forms will be accepted on Fridays only and for such the token is not needed. The requisite actions shall be completed immediately by the respective issuing officials after due process. 

                        (c)        No application forms or delivery of declarations shall be accepted or delivered respectively on any day other than the schedule mentioned in table below.

              The above decisions are again summarised in the following table.
