Back in December 2019, the government had introduced the Rule 86A in GST rules giving powers to taxmen to block the ITC available in the electronic credit ledger of a taxpayer, if the officer has reasons to believe, that the ITC was availed through fraudulent measures. At present, there are 1.32 crore taxpayers registered under GST.
