GST Registration means allotment of a GST Number or GSTIN to the taxpayer who is liable to collect and pay tax to the government after claiming the credit of the taxes paid on purchases. In many cases, the taxpayer might want to change registration details on the GST Portal. This is called Amendment of Registration under GST.
