  • 24th Jan 2018 - Allahabad High Court directs Govt to extend the period to file GST Tran-1 as petitioner's application for transitional credit as  electronic GST system was not accepted on the last date i.e. 27.12.2017. As a result, the petitioner was likely to suffer loss of credit due to delay. - Continental India Private Limited  Vs UOI & Ors
  • 6th Feb 2018 - Bombay High Court passed an order against a petition filed on GST. The petitioner was unable to access GST Network. E-Way Bills are yet to come into force and without it,  petitioner was unable to move goods anywhere, paralysing its business and making it unable to comply. Though the petitioner was provided partial access after the petition was filed, they are still unable to file returns. Payment of tax was not possible without filing return. The matter was posted for another hearing on 16th February.
    The Court noted that similar grievances were raised before the Allahabad High court in Continental India Private Ltd. Vs UOI Writ (Tax) No. 67 of 2018.
