Sub: Production of Statutory Forms prescribed under CST Act, 1956 at the time of assessment/re-assessment for the year 2005-06 – reg.
It has been represented by the FKCCI that Audit Officers are insisting for the copies of the declaration forms filed by the dealers for the year 2005-06. It is requested by the Federation that the acknowledgement for having received the declaration in the concerned LVO/VSO office should suffice for concluding the assessment for the said year. The representation made by the FKCCI is verified and the following instructions are issued:
i) It is hereby instructed to inform the Audit Officers to accept the list of forms submitted by the assessees which is duly acknowledged by the concerned LVO/VSO. The list submitted should contain all the details of such declaration forms like invoice no., date, invoice value and any other details which are mandatory to be furnished in such Statutory Forms.
ii) If any of the details are not forth coming in the said list, copies of the duplicate declaration forms retained by the dealers, the originals of which are purported to have been already submitted to the concerned LVO/VSO have to be obtained from such dealers.
iii) It is also instructed that, to lessen the hardship to the dealers, before insisting for the detailed list or duplicate copies of the Statutory Forms, the Audit Officers have to be instructed to verify the claim of the dealers that they have filed the Statutory Forms in the concerned LVO/VSO, by contacting the concerned Offices personally to ensure that such declarations are available or not in the said office.
2. The above instructions are to be scrupulously followed by all the Officers concerned.
