Delhi HC directs Revenue / Govt. to file status report w.r.t. assertions made by Sales Tax Bar Association regarding issuance of show cause notices to large number of assessees for discrepancy between GSTR-1 & GSTR-3B, and effectiveness of IT Grievance Redressal Mechanism set up in terms of Circular No. 39/13/2018-GST.

It finds prima facie merit in petitioner’s contention that reply under grievance mechanism should specifically deal with issue raised and indicate the manner in which same has been resolved and addressed.

On the other hand, directs petitioner to immediately respond to Revenue’s emails to furnish information and details for each issue, else it would be construed as issue being resolved and settled. Further, it relists the matter on August 3
