SOME IMPORTANT AND RELEVANT CIRCULARS Government of West Bengal Directorate of Commercial Taxes, 14, Beliaghata Road, Kolkata-700015 TRADE CIRCULAR NO. 02/2013 Dated: ..13/02/2013..... Sub: User ID & Password Recently some instances of unauthorised use of their user id and password have been reported by some dealers. For instance, it is alleged that the person trusted by one such dealer has generated waybills without the knowledge of the dealer in order to evade tax. It is also alleged that contact information has been modified behind the knowledge of the concerned dealer to deny notification of such unauthorised generation of waybill to him. It is a matter of serious concern. This should be taken as warning for all registered dealers. The password is generated by the dealer himself and it is the responsibility of the dealer himself to maintain the secrecy of his user id and password. A dealer cannot shelve his responsibility of any alleged misuse of user id and password by any means. Moreover, the dealer shall be liable to pay tax, interest and penalty involved in such a case. Criminal proceedings and other legal actions according to provisions of law shall be taken against all concerned including the dealer himself. Dealers are therefore advised against sharing their user id and passwords with anybody. It is to reiterate that when a dealer avails any e-service from CTD website, like filing of returns or generations of waybill etc, system generated sms and emails are sent to their contacts. Hence dealers are also advised to check their contacts and other information from Dealer’s Profile link of the CTD website and ensure that they are their own and not anybody else’s. A dealer cannot deny responsibility of such unauthorised use of e-services and avoid any legal/criminal proceeding merely on the plea of breach of trust.

GOVERNMENT OF WEST BENGAL DIRECTORATE OF COMMERCIAL TAXES 14, BELIAGHATA ROAD, KOLKATA – 15 CIRCULAR DATED 12-06-2013 Sub: Resetting of Password e-Services There is a provision for resetting of Password for the dealers who are availing e-Services. This facility is available through Helpdesk and the same is done after getting proper documents from the applicant dealers. Besides resetting of Password through Helpdesk, there is also a facility of resetting of password by the dealer through “forgot password” link. However, there are reports that dealers are facing some difficulty in getting their passwords reset. 2. It is, therefore, decided that the dealers would be required to reset their passwords first by using the “forgot password” link where they have access to email IDs as recorded in our database. However, in cases where a dealer does not have access to his email ID that is recorded in the database, he would be required to approach his Charge/ Group Officer and apply for “resetting” his password along with an undertaking that he would be responsible for any action arising out of the use of such reset password. When the Charge Group Officer is satisfied about the bona fide of the application, the Charge/Group Officer would write an email to the Helpdesk at for resetting the password. Record of each reset password by the dealer should be kept with the records of that dealer in the concerned Charge. It should be ensured by the Charge/Group Officer that such resetting of password is allowed only in genuine and deserving cases. The mobile number and email address should invariably be mentioned in the request. Henceforth, no request for resetting the password should be sent to Helpdesk directly. 3. The password reset should then be done by the system and emailed/SMSed to the dealer at the new email/mobile. Intimation should also be sent at old email/mobile if changed. 4. The above guidelines are to be strictly followed to avoid any misuse of password of the dealer in availing e-Services in future. Sd/- 12.06.2013 (Binod Kumar) Commissioner, Sales Tax, W.B.
