Thought to ponder…

Is there any scope of refund of the interest that has been collected on gross tax liability?

If yes, Government should guide the taxpayers on how to apply for the refund of the same.

Will the interest be refunded with interest? Then at what rate?

What happens with the taxpayers who have already canceled their registration and had paid interest on gross tax liability?
