GST officers have no power to seize cash during search operations

The Hon’ble Delhi High Court in Arvind Goyal CA v. Union of India & Ors. [W.P.(C) 12499/2021 dated January 19, 2023] has held that, seizure under Section 67 of the Central Goods and Services Tax Act, 2017 (“the CGST Act”) is limited to goods liable for confiscation or any documents, books or things which may be useful for or relevant to any proceedings and ‘cash’ does not fall within the definition of ‘goods’ therefore, the action of Goods and Services Tax (“GST”) officers of taking away currency was illegal and without any authority of law.
