After decades of positive deliberation, India has finally accepted the idea of a common indirect tax regime- Goods and Services Tax (GST). GST law provides that the taxable person will be required to make payment of tax (i.e. CGST, SGST, IGST and Additional Tax) including interest, penalty or fee through electronic cash/credit ledger. However business person need to know that cross utilisation of electronic cash/credit under IGST for CGST and SGST payment, electronic cash/credit under CGST for IGST payment and electronic cash/credit under SGST for IGST payment will be allowed. However, cross utilisation of cash/credit under CGST for payment of SGST and vice versa will not be allowed.
