WBVAT Deptt. calls for Urgent updation of E-mail addresses and contact mobile numbers by dealers
The WBVAT Deptt. has called for urgent updation of E-mail addresses and contact mobile numbers (before 10 Nov. 2016) by dealers registered under WBVAT Act, 2003 for furnishing to GSTN, as under:
To facilitate introduction of Goods and Services Tax (GST), existing dealers registered under the West Bengal Value Added Tax, 2003 (WBVAT Act) shall be registered under the new Act from its effective date. Goods and Services Tax Network (GSTN) shall generate new Registration Number against valid PAN for each dealer. The dealers are required to update information and furnish additional information to GSTN using the user id and password to be provided by the GSTN. The user id and password shall be sent by the GSTN to the dealers through email and SMS.
It is therefore required for all dealers, currently registered under the WBVAT Act, 2003, to update their email addresses and mobile contact numbers through ‘Dealer Profile’ available in West Bengal Commercial Tax website (https://egov.wbcomtax.gov.in/DealerProfile/) so that the user id and password reaches them securely. Dealers should provide their own email address and mobile contact number for the purpose of security of user id and password. It is needless to say that dealers shall be liable for any misuse of their user id and password communicated to them through email address and mobile contact number available with the database of the Commercial Tax Directorate and the Directorate shall have no responsibility in this matter.
The email addresses and mobile contact numbers should be updated within 10th November, 2016.
