Geocoding : Functionality Live For All States And Union Territories

The Goods and Services Tax Network (GSTN) made the geocoding functionality live for all states and union territories.

  • There are concerns over fake registrations and fraudulent availment of input tax credit under the Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime.
  • Geocoding converts an address or description of a location into geographic coordinates.
  • It has been introduced to ensure the accuracy of address details in GSTN records and streamline the address location and verification process.
  • GST Network has already geocoded 1.8 crore principal places of businesses.
  • The functionality is available for normal, composition, SEZ units, SEZ developers, input service distributor and casual taxpayers who are active, cancelled, and suspended.
  • This is a one-time activity and once submitted, revision in the address is not allowed.
  • The functionality will not be visible to the taxpayers who have already geocoded their address through new registration or core amendment.
