    Hi Prateek,
    Thanks for the reply. But still I have a question.
    I am an employee to an MNC. Can I register myself as a proprietor to any business?
    Can I do both?

    Hi ,

    I am working in a software company (MNC). Recently I applied and got a GST number. Now i got to know, as i am the employee of an organisation I shouldnt be having the GST. Is that correct? If yes , what should I do next?

      You are not required to register under GST to work as an employee. If you are asking that you can have GST number or not, then it’s answer is that you can have GST number, there is no restriction on having a GST number by any person. Let us know if you has any other query.

          Yes, you can do both. There is no rule which disallows you to do so. In fact, many of our clients do job and also do some part time business.

  3. I applied on August 30th still in process . It’s October 7 th now still not processed

      It may take time as it has to be approved by your local Assessing officer. I suggest you to keep filing NIL returns for each month until the request for surrender is accepted.
