As per Section 109 of the Finance Act, 2021, Amendment in Section 16 is done by inserting clause (aa) after section 16(2)(a), namely-

Earlier, CBIC inserted sub-rule (4) under Rule 36 of the CGST Rules, 2017. The rule states that the provisional tax credit (without invoices on GSTR-2B) can be claimed in the GSTR-3B to the extent of 5% of eligible ITC reflected in the GSTR-2B.

Section 37 contains the details to be submitted for outward supplies in GSTR-1 . Therefore, from 1st January 2022, ITC can be claimed only in relation to invoices or debit note furnished by supplier in GSTR-1. There will be no additional facility of GST 5% ITC for invoices not reflected in GSTR-1 as earlier and it will also rest disputed validity of Rule 36(4).

However, it was earlier restricted to 20% for the period from 9th Oct 2019 up to 31st Dec 2019 while 10% between 1st Jan 2020 and 31st Dec 2020.
