While inspecting the goods in movement on 24.08.2018, various discrepancies were found and the said vehicle along with the goods were detained by respondent No.3 under Sub-section (1) of Section 129 of the Punjab Goods and Services Tax Act, 2017 and under Section 20 of the Integrated Goods and Services Tax Act read with sub-Section (3) of Section 68 of the Central Goods and Services Tax Act, 2017.
