GSTN (Goods and Services Tax Network) has established itself seeing constant upgrades with time, presently propelling its self-service portal. Since GST has been recently introduced, various confusions surround it.
With Crores of taxpayers getting to GST portal and the obvious issues they may have, GSTN has overhauled their previous Helpdesk into another SELF HELP, where taxpayers do not need to mail their inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org anymore.

Along these lines, it gives one straightforward answer for huge numbers of your GST-related issues.
You should simply, go to the Grievance Redressal Portal and raise a ticket. Express the problem and inquire and check the status of your raised tickets now and then.
