Chandigarh: The Excise and Taxation Department will make C forms available online from the next financial year.
It is mandatory for the traders engaged in inter-state transactions to fill C forms with their quarterly VAT returns. But these forms are generally out of stock with the department and some businessmen would buy these from the neighbouring states.
“Now, there will be no need for the traders to go to the Excise and Taxation Department for buying the forms. These forms will be made available online and one can fill the forms online. The hard copy of the forms will not be required to be filled,” Excise and Taxation Commissioner A Venu Parsad said.
“C forms were usually not available with the Excise Department. Traders use to make various rounds of the department for getting the forms. Filing these forms online would be an easy and a hassle-free task now,” he said.
Traders across the state have welcomed the decision, saying that filing these forms online will save their time and the department will also get the forms on time.
