SC: Dismisses SLP against HC-order quashing demand against service recipient for GSTR 2A- GSTR 3B mismatch

SC dismisses Revenue’s SLP against  Calcutta HC decision which quashed demand of ITC against service recipient for mismatch in GSTR 2A and GSTR 3B in absence of any investigation done at the end of the supplier whose invoices are not reflecting in GSTR 2A; HC cited lack of exceptional case like missing dealer, closure of business by supplier or supplier not having adequate assets etc. and concluded that, straight away Revenue “was not justified” in directing the assessee to reverse the ITC availed by it.
