GST ARN Track Status

There could be 6 different outcomes when an applicant tracks the ARN Status which includes:

•    Form Assigned to GST Officer

This ARN Status shows during when the GST application is assigned towards the GST officer relating to the processing and approvals. However, this status doesn’t imply that your GST Registration application was cancelled.

•    Pending for Clarification

The ARN status appears when the GST officer requests the applicant towards submitting the clarification on the filed GST Registration application. Thus, the applicant is required to submit the clarification on the GST Portal as soon as possible.

•    Clarification Filed – Pending for Order

This status comes when the clarification has been filed by the applicant against the issues escalated by means of the GST Officer. Though, the order for approval is still on hold from the GST officer part.

•    Clarification not Filed – Pending for Order

This ARN status comes when the applicant doesn’t furnish the clarification towards the GST officer within the set time period. Thus there is a probability that the GST registration application of the applicant would get rejected through the concerned GST officer.

•    Application Approved

In case the applicant obtains this status after tracking the status, this implies that the application for GST registration was approved by the GST Officer. When this status comes then the applicant would soon get GST identification number (GSTIN) and the applicant will get the GST registration certificated soon.

•    Application Rejected

This ARN status comes when the GST Registration application has been rejected by the GST officer. Also, when the applicant wants to register under GST, then the person is required to re-submit the GST Registration form.
