 GST Council has decided to raise the threshold limit from 20 lakhs to 40 lakhs for GST registration for suppliers of goods. Further, the limit has been raised from 10 lakhs to 20 Lakhs in case of north-eastern and hilly States. However, an option has been provided to States to opt for higher threshold limit, i.e., every State has the right to choose either higher threshold limit (i.e., 40 Lakhs) or to keep same threshold limit (i.e., 20 Lakhs).

Currently, as per GST Act, a supplier providing inter-State supplies is required to take mandatory registration under GST, irrespective of its turnover.

composition scheme is also introduced for service providers whose turnover is less than 50 Lakhs in preceding Financial Year.
Also, composition scheme is not available to dealers engaged in inter-State supplies of goods or services or both.
