GST Registration Based on Aadhaar Technology Available in Five States 

They have launched the Aadhaar authentication of taxpayers on a pilot basis.

Telangana, Tamil Nadu, and Karnataka are among the five states that have indicated interest in utilising Aadhaar-based verification for GST registration, according to a statement made by an official on Monday.

Senior Central and State GST officers talked about biometric-based verification earlier this month at the third National Coordination Meeting.

Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh, along with the Union Territory of Puducherry, are now undergoing trial programs. They have launched the Aadhaar authentication of taxpayers on a pilot basis.

Five states, including Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and Telangana, have shown interest in implementing Aadhaar-based authentication for GST registration.

The representative added that these states planned to assess the financial, labour, and technical costs related to implementing the requirement for biometric authentication for registration.

After obtaining the information and conducting an evaluation, these states must submit the proposal to respective state cabinets for approval.

The authorities responsible for the Goods and Services Tax (GST) have used OTP-based Aadhaar authentication to confirm the identity of individuals seeking registration.

Following cases in which individuals’ identities were used to create fictional businesses to claim an input tax credit (ITC), the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) made the decision to transition to biometric authentication. In certain suspicious instances, the applicant for registration may be forced under this new regulation to visit an Aadhaar facility to have his biometrics confirmed.

After Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka accounts for the second-largest portion of the April GST receipts. Maharashtra had the highest monthly revenue.

April was the first month of the unified tax system’s implementation, and GST revenues, which include both federal and state mop-up, broke the Rs 2 trillion mark.

April saw a 12.4% growth in Goods and Services Tax revenue, reaching a new high of Rs 2.10 trillion. Increased imports and domestic transactions, stronger economic momentum, and better revenue growth were all factors in this.
