The Supreme Court yesterday stayed the proceedings in Delhi and Chhattisgarh High Courts relating to the applicability of Goods and Services Tax (GST) to legal services.

A Bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices AM Khanwilkarand DY Chandrachud passed the order to that effect in a transfer petition filed by the Central government seeking transfer of cases pending in the two High Courts to Supreme Court.

Additional Solicitor General Pinky Anand appeared for the Central government.

In a petition filed by one JK Mittal, the Delhi High Court had ordered that there will be no GST registration for lawyers and law firms for any legal service till it was clarified whether all legal services provided by legal practitioners and firms would be governed by the reverse charge mechanism.
