A large section of taxpayers can face similar technical problems on the GST portal. Thus, the CBIC came up with the concept of IT grievance redressal mechanism to resolve such common and popular issues. The GST implementation committee sets up an IT Grievance Redressal Committee. It will approve and recommend to GSTN the steps to be taken for redressal of grievances.

However, taxpayer grievances related to matters other than technical problems like non-availability of the internet, issues of individual taxpayers or any other localised problem are not entertained by the GRC.

The following process will be followed to handle the taxpayer grievances:

  1. Application to the nodal officer: A nodal officer will be appointed for each state. Taxpayers can make an application to their respective jurisdictional nodal officers specifying the technical issues faced on the GST common portal.
  2. Submission of evidence: A taxpayer shall also submit evidence to the nodal officer to support the attempts made by him for complying with the due process of law.
  3. Sending such applications to GSTN: The jurisdictional nodal officers will examine the requests, collate them and then submit the same to GSTN nodal officer at his email ID – in the below format:
