32nd GST Council Meeting: Threshold limit for GST Registration raised to Rs. 40 lakh:
The GST council in its 32nd meeting has recommended several changes under GST law in ease of doing business for MSMEs and SMEs. Considering the demand of small industries to raise threshold limit for registration under GST, the GST Council has decided to raise the threshold limit from 20 lakhs to 40 lakhs for GST registration for suppliers of goods. Further, the limit has been raised from 10 lakhs to 20 Lakhs in case of north-eastern and hilly States. However, an option has been provided to States to opt for higher threshold limit, i.e., every State has the right to choose either higher threshold limit (i.e., 40 Lakhs) or to keep same threshold limit (i.e., 20 Lakhs).
