The Honorable High Court observed that the impugned order contained reasons in the remarks column and reasons for declining refund were mentioned in the order passed by the competent authority. The assessee can’t categorize the impugned order to be non-speaking since they would not dissuade the assessee from knowing the mind of the adjudicating authority or dissuading from filing an appeal. Therefore, the petition was dismissed and the assessee was relegated to avail alternative remedy of appeal under GST Act.
