Section 140 of the CGST Act— Transitional Credit – The Petitioner submitted that despite repeated efforts made to upload its claim for credit in Form GST TRAN-1 on the portal of the respondents, it could not do so due to errors in their system including technical difficulties faced in uploading credit Form GST TRAN-1. He submitted that despite repeated requests made to the respondents to extend the last date for filing the claim of credit input in Form GST TRAN-1, they have refused to extend the deadline.
