DVAT Creates New E-commerce Zone and New Ward No. 300 for E-Commerce companies
To provide better facilities to E-commerce companies, the DVAT Deptt has taken initiative and created a separate zone and ward for catering to the E-commerce companies.
Recently a new phenomenon has emerged in the business in which sales are being conducted through on-line web portals. To tap the value added tax being collected on the sales being made through these web portals, the Commissioner, VAT, Govt. of NCT of Delhi has prescribed a periodical return for the persons engaged in providing facilities of electronic shopping (commonly known as E-commerce) through their web portals vide notification No.F.3(515)/Policy/VAT/2015/330-41 dated 26.06.2015 and its amendments.
Since the E-commerce companies are new entrants in the market and doing business in very large volume it is desirable that they should be paid special attention by the Trade & Taxes Department. To provide better facilities to these E-commerce companies, it has been decided that a separate ward for catering to the E-commerce companies may be created in the department. Therefore, the Trade & Taxes Department hereby creates a new Ward and also a new zone with the name of ‘E-Commerce Zone’ to deal with E-commerce companies.
All the E-commerce companies registered in the department shall be shifted to this newly created Ward and future new registrations for all the E-commerce companies shall be dealt in this Ward. This newly created Ward for E-commerce companies shall be called Ward No.300 and simultaneously newly created Zone shall be called ‘E-Commerce Zone’.
The geographical jurisdiction for this newly created Ward No.300 and E-commerce Zone would be the geographical limits of National Capital Territory of Delhi. The Commissioner, Trade & Taxes and also the Value Added Tax Authorities appointed under the DVAT Act, 2005 and Rules made thereunder shall exercise all the powers in r/o this ward/zone conferred upon the said officers under the DVAT Act, 2005 and Rules made thereunder.
