Goods and Services Tax(GST) is a comprehensive tax levied on manufacture, trade and services across India. From 1st July, 2017 GST has replaced most of Centre and State imposed indirect taxes like VAT, Service Tax , Excise etc. Goods and Services Tax Identification Number (GSTIN) is a 15 digits state-wise PAN-based number to be used to identify businesses registered under GST.
Businesses in the Northeastern and hill states with annual turnover below Rs.10 lakh have been kept out of the GST net. Since your turnover is not exceeding the limit of Rs. 10 lakh, GST registration is not mandatory for you. In following cases registration is mandatory even if turnover limit has not been crossed:
For claiming input of the tax paid on purchase from supplier
If your supplier is registered under GST and wants to claim the credit of his purchase, he can do so only if you are able to issue a GST invoice, thus GST registration becomes mandatory in the case

If you have multiple places of businesses in same state, you can get them all registered under a single GST registration application. Give the name of your registered business place as primary place of business, the other branches can be added as additional places of business at no additional cost.
