The Union Territory administration directes the excise and taxation department to submit a report on tax defaulters.

The excise and taxation department further directed the all officials of the excise and taxation department to strictly enforce Centre’s instructions in their respective wards against tax defaulters.

The direction came after e-way bill generation of 1,026 firms was blocked for not filing GST returns for December 2019 and January 2020 on time.

“Department was told to prepare a list of defaulters, action initiated against them, like blocking e-way bill generation, and submit a report. The idea is to keep a check on revenue generation and defaulters,” the senior UT official said.

The e-way bill is an electronically generated document mandatory to be carried for movement of goods across India and within the city. It is necessary for the movement of goods worth more than Rs.50,000 with some exceptions.

The various firms approached the department stating that in the absence of e-way bill generation, they would not be able to transport their goods from one place to another.

Recently, the figures of GST collection in Chandigarh continued to dip in September as well, standing at Rs 141 crore.
