Gst Registration for Proprietor

Goods and Services Tax (GST) registration is mandatory for businesses in India whose aggregate turnover exceeds a certain threshold limit. The threshold limit may change, so it’s essential to check the current limit with the relevant authorities. The threshold limit for GST registration for businesses in most states was INR 20 lakhs (INR 10 lakhs for special category states).
