Persons not liable to obtain GST registration:(sec23 of cgst act)

I am discussing provisions of sec23 and also up to date relevant circular and notification.

  • Persons engaged exclusively in supplyinggoods/services/both not liable to tax. Eg:X is a trader and he is trading100% in alcohol for human consumption.His turnover is 2 crores.Therefore X isnot liable to obtain registration as per sec23(1)(a)
  • Persons engaged exclusively in supplyinggoods/services/both which are wholly exempt from tax.
  • Agriculturist to the extent of supply of produce out of cultivation of land.

According to my interpratation while computing  aggregateturnover ‘intrastate supply of goods agricultural produce grown out ofcultivation of land by family members shall not be included because they usedthe wording ‘to the extent of’

Eg.MR.A has an intra state supply of agricultural produce(own effort) Rs.15 Lakhs,Intrastate supply of exempt goods Rs.10Lakhs,& taxable supplies is Rs.5 Lakhs.He is not supposed to take gst registration because turnover does not exceed 20lakhs i.e 10 plus 5 =15 lakhs.while computing  aggregate turnover ‘intrastate supply of goods agricultural produce grown out of cultivation of land by family members shall not be included
