It may be noted that User enrollment at GST Portal should not be construed as completion of GST Registration in itself. This exercise is for updation and validation of data of existing taxpayers registered with various tax authorities for use at GST Network (GSTN) post implementation of GST.

Revised Plan of GST User Enrollment (State-wise) at GST Portal

Earlier the GST Portal had advised the users to complete the enrollment within the specified range of dates, however, it was stated that the enrollment window will be open for all existing users till 31 Jan. for those who miss the Schedule. Latest development is that GST Portal has indicated only Start Date for GST Enrollment of Assessees/ Users (State-wise) and there is no specific deadline mentioned. However, as per revised Schedule, we can say that 31 Jan. 2017 is the deadline for all existing VAT/ Service Tax Assessees in all states those who got registered upto 31 Jan. 2016. Whereas from 1 Feb. 2017, users those who have obtained registrations after 31 Jan. 2016 can enroll.
