Sub: Regarding furnishing of revised Form VAT-40E

Where the awarder fails to furnish the statement as mentioned above, the said officer after affording a reasonable opportunity of being heard, may impose penalty under section 64 of the Act.

Similarly, Rule 40(8B) provides that where an awarder discovers any omission or error in the Form VAT-40E furnished by him, he may furnish a revised Form VAT-40E within three months from the close of the relevant year.

The provisions of sub rule 40(8B) does not prevent to proceed to revise VAT40E who failed to revise the same within the stipulated period. Therefore, it is hereby directed that the concern assessing authorities may :-

 1. Identify such awarders of their territorial jurisdiction.

2. Initiate action for levy of penalty in accordance with the provisions of Section 64 of the RVAT Act, 2003 for not revising VAT-40E in the stipulated time and pass a speaking order in this regard.
