Chief Commissioners of Central Excise and Customs Directed to take stock of all Pending Registration Applications for Service Tax and Ensure their Clearance by 23rd September, 2013
All the Chief Commissioners of Central Excise and Customs and Director Generals Service Tax/Systems of Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) have been asked to take stock of all pending registration applications for service tax and ensure that they are cleared by 23rd September 2013. Earlier the Chief Commissioners were asked to closely monitor registration applications as pending applications represent blocked revenue. Some complaints have been received in the Ministry about delays in the processing of applications for new registrations.
Accordingly, these directions have been issued today to all the Chief Commissioners of Central Excise and Customs and Director Generals Service Tax/Systems concerned. They have been asked to send their report as per the prescribed format to the Director General Service Tax at Headquarters electronically by 23rd September, 2013 in this regard.
