R.ARIVALAGAN: There is many more changes in constitution and Principal Place of Business. At the time of VAT/TNGST Registration there may be several partners, now it has been changed by inclusion and deletion of partners and some of the registration details may be differed with Sales Tax Records (Manual/A Register) and in systems due to lackness of Sales Tax Clericals. So the GST Registration should be taken up at current position of the business, it will lead to enrol all of them without any difficult and also time to enrol to be extented upto Feb 28th.
