Aadhaar authentication for new GST registration is active from August 21: Official

Aadhaar authentication for new goods and services tax (GST) registration has been activated from August 21, which will enhance ease of doing business, a senior official said.

For those opting for Aadhaar authentication, new GST registration will be issued within three working days and would not need to wait for physical verification.

However, those not opting for Aadhaar authentication for GST registration would be granted it only after physical verification of the place of business or documentary verification which may take up to 21 working days or more if notice is issued, a senior official said.

"Aadhaar authentication for new registration would substantially enhance ease of doing businesses for genuine businesses," he said.

"This measure is expected to facilitate genuine and honest taxpayers while at the same time keeping the fake and fraudulent entities away from GST," the official added
