Allahabad High Court restrains Central Govt. from establishing GST Appellate Tribunal in UP [Read Order]

The Lucknow Bench of Allahabad High Court restrained the Central Government from establishing a Goods and Service Tax (GST) Appellate Tribunal in Uttar Pradesh.

The court passed the order on a petition filed by the Awadh Bar Association, seeking establishment of the GST Appellate Tribunal at Lucknow. The Association had also opposed proposals for establishment of the Tribunal at Allahabad.

The Additional Solicitor General informed the Court that the Centre and the GST Council have taken a decision to file a Special Leave Petition before the Supreme Court against this order.

A Division Bench comprising Chief Justice Govind Mathur and Justice Ritu Raj Awasthi directed the GST Council and Union of India not to establish the GST Appellate Tribunal for the State without the leave of the Court.

The order came a day after the High Court stayed the establishment of the Education Tribunal, one of the reasons why lawyers in Uttar Pradesh have been boycotting courts.

The court posed the matter on March 15, 2021 for the next hearing.
