Levy of Presumptive Tax on Registered Retailers
(1) The State Government may, subject to such conditions and restrictions as may be specified and prescribed, permit any class or description of registered dealers to pay a lump-sum amount by way of presumptive tax according to the capacity or to the extent of business, calculated at a flat rate on the gross receipt or gross turnover of purchases or of sales as prescribed. And such presumptive tax shall be paid at such intervals and in such manner as may be prescribed, subject to the condition that no input tax credit shall be admissible to such dealer;
Provided that payment of tax under this Section shall not apply to a registered dealer, who is a manufacturer or who imports goods from outside the State for the purpose of carrying out his business:
Provided further that a registered dealer may, by exercising option in the prescribed manner, elect to pay tax as specified under Section 9 or Section 10 of this Act in lieu of the provisions of this Section.
(2) Where the registered dealer is permitted to pay the lump-sum amount as presumptive tax under sub-section (1) of this Section, the provisions of Section 29, 35 and 36 shall not apply so long as he complies with all the terms and conditions as prescribed under this Section.
