The CBIC has announced through a Press Release on 29-Aug-2020 that details of import of goods and the IGST paid thereon, which reflects on the Bill of Entry, will now be displayed in a new table in the GSTR-2A. This information will be taken from the ICEGATE System of the Customs Department.

Currently, the table is displaying information up to 06-Aug-2020 as filed at computerized ports only. Import information for Bills of Entry filed at non-EDI ports and imports through courier may not be displaying currently.

Further, information in Form GSTR-2B is also being made available on the GST portal, which shall display eligibility or ineligibility for ITC of all inputs that may be filed by a person's vendors/suppliers in their GSTR-1/GSTR-5/GSTR-6. This shall be available as static information on the 12th of every month after the respective filing has been completed by the suppliers on the due dates.

To access your GSTR-2B: Login to GST Portal > Returns Dashboard > Select Return period > GSTR-2B

It is recommended that you download your GSTR-2B and reconcile it with your ITC Register.
