Published: April 11, 2023

The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) stated in an order that while its Directorate General of Systems is redesigning integration mechanisms for data exchange, many cases of traders being unable to complete the process “because of unanticipated technical difficulties on the Common Portal and with the authorised banks” have emerged.
