F A Qs
Q.1 What is Form T-2?
Ans. To minimize physical interaction between dealers and VAT Officials and for efficient
administration of the Act, it is considered necessary that the details of invoices and
goods receipt note in respect of goods purchased or received as stock transfer from
outside Delhi be sought from the dealers of Delhi online. Form T-2 prescribed/notified
by the Commissioner, Value Added Tax, Department of Trade and Taxes, requires the
dealers to furnish details of invoices and goods receipt note in respect of goods
purchased or received as stock transfer from outside Delhi. This form has to be
VAT Department would preferably need to be informed about the inward consignments
before goods enter Delhi. If the Vehicle Number is not available in advance, Form T 2
would need to be filed without Vehicle Number and the Vehicle Number would need to
be updated within 24 hours of receipt of the goods by the Delhi dealer. However, in
cases where the complete information in form T-2 is not filed online before the goods
enter Delhi, the Delhi dealer may not dispose of/sell/dispatch such goods till the Vehicle
Number in Form T-2 is updated online.
The Transporter is required to obtain a hard copy of Form T-2 and carry it with the
goods, if the dealer files the complete information in advance. If the dealer updates the
information in Form T-2 within 24 hours of receipt of the goods, the Transporter would
obtain a revised hard copy of the Form T-2 also and retain it. If a dealer claims that he is
exempted from filing information in form T-2, Transporter would obtain a quarterly
declaration from such dealers clearly mentioning their TIN in Delhi and a self-certificate
that they are exempted from filing of information in form T-2.
Q.2 Why Form T-2 has been prescribed/ notified?
Ans. Form T-2 is an endeavor to check loss of revenue which is caused to the exchequer by
unscrupulous dealers bringing goods into Delhi and then not recording the said
transactions in their stocks/books of accounts. Market intelligence reveals that such
dealers sell such goods without charging VAT. This results in unfair competition to
honest dealers from unscrupulous dealers.
In the long run it would reduce the need for checking of vehicles at borders which in
turn will save lot of time of the transporters and dealers. Statistical data generated will
help in better tax planning.
Q.3 What is the procedure to be followed by oil companies dealing in petroleum products
for filing Form T-2? Movement of natural gas is a continuous process starting from
receipt of gas in pipeline network till the delivery of goods to customer who draws gas
according to gas availability and plant's requirement. Gas is transmitted through
underground pipeline. It is not possible to demarcate the boundary of State of Delhi
in the underground pipeline network. Other petroleum products move in tank
wagons. Please clarify.
Ans. For movement by tank wagons, normal procedure of T-2 would apply. Further, Form T-2
has been modified to indicate the mode of transport and one of these modes would be
transportation through pipelines. In case of supply through pipelines, the dealer may
provide information in accordance with the billing cycle used by him to prepare his
Q.4 Various transporters collect the material from various branches/vendors in different
States. The goods are then brought to hub of the transporter. The transporter
deploys another vehicle for different destination from the hub. In such cases it is not
possible to have exact information about the vehicle number which brings goods into
Ans. Vehicle number of only the vehicle that finally brings goods into Delhi is required. The
dealer should create a mechanism to get the vehicle number before the goods enter
Delhi. However, in cases where such information is still not available with the Delhi
dealer and the goods reach Delhi without the Delhi dealer being able to ascertain the
vehicle number, Form T 2 should be filed without Vehicle Number and the Vehicle
Number should be updated within 24 hours of receipt of the goods by the Delhi dealer.
The T-2 Form can be initially uploaded without the Vehicle Number and there would be
a provision to fill the Vehicle Number in case that becomes available before the goods
Q.5 What is required from the transporters? Whether the transporter would be allowed
to bring the goods at his godown or would not be allowed to enter Delhi unless he
obtains the permission of the Department for all consignments in his truck?
Ans. No permission is required by the Transporters to enter Delhi. The Transporter is
required to obtain a hard copy of Form T-2 with or without the Vehicle Number and
carry it with the goods. If vehicle is intercepted then the transporter is required to
furnish a copy of the T-2 to the intercepting team of the Trade & Taxes Department.
Once the dealer updates the Vehicle Number in Form T-2 within 24 hours of receipt of
the goods, the Transporter would obtain a hard copy of the Form T-2 and retain it. If a
dealer claims that he is exempted from filing information in form T-2, Transporter would
obtain a quarterly declaration from such dealers clearly mentioning their TIN in Delhi
and a self-certificate that they are exempted from filing of information in form T-2.
However, the consequences for not filing Form T-2 would need to be borne by dealer on
whose behalf goods are brought into Delhi.
Q.6 Form T-2 is designed to capture details with regard to transport of goods into Delhi by
road only. However, goods may also be received in Delhi through Railways/Air
Cargo/Inland Courier. What is the procedure for such movements? Form T-2 is not
compatible for import details. Further,
a) What is to be filled in the field `STATE' where the supplier is out of India?
b) What is to be filled, in the field `Transporters Details' i.e. whether dispatch details
from outside India are to be filled or dispatch details of local transporter from
Seaport or Airport are to be uploaded?
c) How to upload the details if materials come to Delhi directly from outside India by
Ans. Some modifications have been made in the existing format of Form T-2 to address such
problems. Option to select Outside India has been included in the window for State.
Option to indicate mode of transport i.e. by Road, Railways, Air Carrier, Pipelines,
Internet has also been provided in the form. Vehicle number would be required only in
cases of road transport. GR/RR/Airway Bill/Courier Receipt would be mandatory for
transport by Road/Railways/Air/ Courier respectively in accordance with Form 7 & 8 of
Carriage by Road Rules.
Q.7 Where the goods are transported in Delhi by Rail, Form T-2 requires mention of RR
number. After the goods are received at the rail head, goods are moved to
warehouses of dealers in numerous trucks. What modus operandi is to be followed
for movement of goods from rail head to its destination?
Ans. Form T-2 is required only in respect of movement of goods into Delhi. RR number
would suffice here. There is no requirement of any information being uploaded for the
movement of goods within Delhi.
Q.8 How to upload the details if quantity of one invoice is dispatched in multiple vehicles
or goods covered by multiple invoices enter Delhi in a single vehicle?
Ans. There has to be at least one T-2 Form per vehicle entering Delhi. Multiple T-2 Forms can
be submitted in cases where the goods covered by same invoice enter Delhi in various
vehicles and vice-versa. If multiple consignments of different dealers through different
invoices enter Delhi, one T-2 Form for each invoice is required to be uploaded. Thus,
there will be one T-2 Form per GR per vehicle per invoice.
Q.9 Can goods from NCR move without GR?
Ans. No. The goods carrier has to move the goods with valid GR prescribed under DVAT Act
and Carriage of Goods by Road Act.
Q.10 Invoices are prepared indicating basic rate per unit for each item and the Central
Excise Duty and Central Sales Tax is applied on gross sale value as per basic sale rate.
The portal of the Department of Trade and Taxes requires the gross value including
Central Excise Duty and CST. This requires a lot of calculations. It makes uphill task to
submit online information in Form T-2. Is it necessary to upload item wise details or
commodity wise details can be uploaded? What is the requirement of Form T-2 if
there are number of small items for spare parts etc.? In such a case can we file total
quantity, total amount and average rate?
Ans. The dealers may give either item wise details indicating amount for each rate of tax or
he may give commodity wise details and total amount of that tax rate. Option is
available to inform either unit wise details or total value of each commodity. It means
that if four kinds of watches of different brands/prices have been purchased then entry
of all watches can be can be made in one row instead of giving unit price of each brand.
Total value will be sufficient. Department Software has been suitably modified for this
purpose. The procedure is illustrated in the following example:
Item Quantity(pc) Rate(Rs/pc) Value(Rs)
Watches 10 1000 10,000
Watches 15 600 9,000
Watches 10 20,000 200,000
Watches 12 15,000 180,000
Gross Amount: Rs.3,99,000/-
Less Discount @10% Rs.39,900/-
Add Excise Duty @ 12%: Rs.43,092/-
Add surcharge @ 3% of Excise Duty: Rs.1,293/-
Add CST @ 2%: Rs.8,070/-
Grand Total: Rs.4,11,555/-
For the purpose of filing T2
Value of 25 watches taxable @ 12.5% = 411555*19000/399000=Rs.19,598/-
Value of 22 watches taxable @ 20% = 411555*380000/399000=Rs.3,91,957/-
Entry in form T2
Item Qty Unit Rate Value
Watches Taxable@ 12.5% 25 pieces Rs.19,598/-
Watches Taxable@ 20% 22 pieces Rs.3,91,957/-
Q.11 Purchases from nearby places reach Delhi within an hour or two and very often due to
entry restrictions at night. That does not leave the dealer with sufficient time to
submit Form T-2 online particularly when the data to be submitted is bulky?
Ans. Even in absence of Vehicle Number, facility to upload and submit the data regarding
invoice and commodity details has been provided. Vehicle number can also be inserted
just before submission in case the same is available before entry. However, if the goods
reach Delhi without the Delhi dealer being able to ascertain the vehicle number, the
same would need to be updated in the already otherwise complete and not uploaded T-
2 Form, within 24 hours of receipt of the goods by the Delhi dealer. Further, till
completed T-2 Form is uploaded, the dealer shall not be permitted to sell, export or
Q.12 Information/details in Form T-2 are required to be filled in by the Delhi dealers before
entering of goods in Delhi. This would be done on the basis of information provided
by the supplier of goods. When the dealer receives the goods, there may be certain
mismatches which may occur due to various reasons. How would the
details/information be corrected and amended in the system? Similarly in certain
cases Form T-2 may be required to be cancelled. What is the procedure?
Ans. The dealer will have an option to submit another T-2 Form giving reference to the
Unique ID against already filed T-2 Form within 24 hours of receipt of goods into Delhi.
The revised details should match with those contained in GR/RR/Airway Receipt/Courier
Receipt. The reason for revision would also need to be indicated. If required, in such
cases, the dealers may be required to justify this with the help of supporting documents
Q.13 Where the goods are brought into Delhi or rejected and not returned to the supplier
for which dealer would not issue `C' Form. How would the data of T -2 be reconciled
with requirement of `C' Form?
Ans. Form T-2 is to be filed for inward movement of goods and not for outward movement.
The rejection/goods returned would be explained by the Delhi dealer with the help of
relevant documents and accounts. Out of sales made by the Delhi dealer, if some goods
are returned/come back into Delhi, the same would be required to be reported in Form
T-2. If required, supporting documents may have to be produced.

including import duty or without duty?

sufficient. The dealer should have duly informed the details of principal and all other
places of business in Delhi to the Department.
Q.17 The value of goods is computed automatically by the system. In number of cases this
does not match with the total invoice amount as required to be mentioned at the top
of Form T-2 on account of rounding off etc.
Ans. There is a provision for entering the total value of the commodity taxable at one rate of
tax. Option is available to inform either unit wise details or total value of each
commodity. Department Software has been suitably modified for this purpose.

goods are exempted from Tax in State of dispatch?
Ans. Yes. In all cases where goods are brought into Delhi, the dealer is required to submit T-2

Q.20 Whether submission of Form T-2 is required for goods imported by a dealer/factory of

Delhi. Is he required to submit Form T-2?
Ans. Only registered dealers of Delhi are required to submit Form T-2.
Q.22 Whether farmers are required to submit Form T-2?
Ans. T-2 Form is to be submitted by registered dealers only. If the farmer is bringing non-
exempt goods for delivering it to dealer of Delhi, the said dealer will be required to
submit Form T-2. If the farmer intends to sell the goods himself, he would become a
dealer requiring registration. Such a farmer would be required to abide by the
provisions of the Delhi Value Added Tax Act, 2004.
Q.23 What is the position of submission of Form T-2 in cases where supplier or the buyer
does not have a facility of internet?
Ans. Submission of Form T-2 is mandatory for all registered dealers. A desk top computer is
now quite cheap. Further seller/buyer can use the service of their Accountant or even
an internet cafe to submit the information online. Purchaser can even request the
selling dealer to submit T-2 on his behalf.
Q.24 If the purchasing dealer of Delhi requests the selling dealer to fill in Form T-2 on his
behalf, then dealer of Delhi needs to share his user ID and Password with the seller.
Both these items have secret code, sharing it with others will defeat the secrecy?
Ans. The Department will allow multiple User IDs to be created by the Delhi dealers.
Purchasing dealer of Delhi can create some User ID and provide it to the supplier who
can upload the details in Form T-2 at their end, on behalf of the buyer.
The multiple IDs may be distinct from their standard ID normally used for filing of
returns and paying tax. This way the confidentiality will not be compromised. Dealers
of Delhi will be able to create and close such IDs in any number by themselves.
The Delhi dealer, however, would be responsible for any wrong uploading of data,
misuse of such IDs, etc. It is, therefore, advisable that the purchasing dealer itself
furnishes the required information.
Q.25 What will happen if the purchasing dealer does not have exact amount of the goods
being brought into Delhi as the requisite information is not available with the buying

goods enter into Delhi. After receiving the information he is required to follow the
procedure. The submission of Form T-2 is mandatory.

Ans. The dealer, whose goods finally enter into Delhi shall be liable to submit Form T-2.

dealer of Delhi would require a `C' form, the necessary information should be provided.
Q.27 What is the position of submission of Form T-2 in cases where the term of the sale is
FOR and supplier is not providing details of transporter, vehicle number etc.
Ans. Delhi buyers must seek details from the supplier through E-mail, phone or SMS. There is
no reason as to why the supplier will not make the information available if the buyer
demands it to comply with requirement of law. However, if the goods reach Delhi
without the Delhi dealer being able to ascertain the vehicle number, Form T 2 should
be filed without Vehicle Number and the Vehicle Number should be updated within 24
hours of receipt of the goods by the Delhi dealer.
Q.28 Our experience suggests that on number of occasions website of the Department is
not accessible due to technical reasons like site under maintenance or
network/connectivity issues. What would be the alternative in such cases especially
when goods are coming from nearby areas where transit time is very less?
Ans. The Department will ensure that the website can handle all such works without
technical failure. The hardware capacity is being augmented after allowing for
redundancy beyond the peak load with reasonable back up to cover occasional failure.
