Till 31.12.2021, there was no express provision in the GST Act to look into GSTR-2A for availing the Input Tax Credit. This restriction of availing the ITC based on the GSTR-2A was placed in Rule 36(4) of the CGST Rules 2017 w.e.f. 9th October 2019. Rule 36(4) was amended many times [20%, 10%, 5%, 0%] Rule 36(4) is considered to be Ultravires to the GST Act, in the absence of a specific provision in the Act till 31.12.2021. Thereby, Demand of GST Dept to reverse the ITC which is not reflected in 2A may not be right. Further, in this regard CBIC has issued Circular No 183 which provided to obtain a declaration from the Vendors and their CA's depending on the tax amount involved (less or more than 5 Lakhs) In connection to this, following judgments can be relied upon: D.Y. Beathel Enterprises vs. the State tax Officer (Data Cell) [2021-TIOL-890-HC-MAD-GST] and many more........
