Thank you very much for the response given sir. It is very informative.
I request you to answer question 10a too. I am reproducing the question below:

Tax invoice is an invoice as per section 29(1), where in it is said sale of taxable goods or exempt goods shall be by way of tax invoice where the tax is separately mentioned and time of sale shall be mentioned and other details.
Bill of sale is under section 29(3) where the bill covers sale by compostion dealers .
