  1. As per the above Chart of Registration Procedure, My client doesn’t get the GSTIN Certificate yet since the application is successfully submitted and ARN also received on 01.07.2017. Almost 7 days gone, still GSTIN not generated.

    • S. Subburayalu, Check Your email or dashboard, if concerned department raise any query? If not then please contact customer support of GST. Call them and ask why GSTIN is not generated? Otherwise tell your ARN so that we can ask their custom support. Thanks
