  9. I have received my final GST certificate however I never could complete the core fields in part B on GST portal. It refused certain entries.

    Now I like to cancel my registration because my annual turnover is less than 20 lakh.

    It seems that FORM GST REG-29 is suitable for cancelkation of MIGRATED dealers but where to find and how to file this form online in the GST Portal?

  10. Yesterday I noticed the attached GST update notice 36/2017 of 29 September 2017 regarding cancellation of MIGRATED Dealers through FORM GST REG-29. 

    The notice says:

    FORM GST REG-29, –

    (a) for the heading, “APPLICATION FOR CANCELATION OF 



    OF MIGRATED TAXPAYERS” shall be substituted.

    Is this an option to file the cancellstion of our GST registration online?

    Where on the GST portal can I find the cancellation option online?
