  1. Hey @HarshitShah

    GST refund claims must be filed within 2 years from the relevant date. If the claim is in order, the refund has to be sanctioned within a period of 60 days from the date of receipt of the claim.

    If a refund is not approved within the stated period of 60 days, interest at the rate notified must be paid in conformity with section 56 of the CGST/SGST Act.

    Hope this helps!

  2. Hey,

    Which form should be filed to claim a refund? And can I file for a refund offline?

  3. Hey @SonalYadav

    You can file for a refund both online and offline. A taxpayer can file for a refund by filing Form RFD-01/ RFD-01A. RFD-01 is an application for the online processing of refund under GST. It is to be e-filed on the GST portal. Whereas, RFD - 01A is the application form for refund form under GST for manual processing.

    Hope this helps! :slight_smile:
