Goods and Services Tax (GST) system in India allows for the refund of tax paid on inward supplies of goods by the Canteen Store Department (CSD), as outlined in Circular No. 227/21/2024-GST issued by the GST policy wing. GSTN has developed an online functionality on the GST portal for CSDs to file refund applications using FORM GST RFD-10A. Applicants must follow specific prerequisites and relevant dates detailed in the circular. Refund applications must be filed sequentially for each tax period, and if no refund is claimed for a period, a NIL refund claim must be submitted. The process involves selecting the refund period, uploading invoice details, specifying refund amounts (IGST, CGST, SGST), and selecting the bank account for refund disbursement. Once submitted, refund applications cannot be modified. Any issues encountered can be reported via the GST grievance redressal portal.
