The below chart will clear all your doubts regarding the GSTR 9 applicability for FY 2019-20
Annual Return (GSTR 9)
GST Audit (GSTR 9C)

Turnover more than Rs. 2 Crore and less than Rs. 5 Crore
As per the above, The GST audit is applicable when total turnover on the PAN India basis exceeds Rs. 5 crores for FY 2019-20. However, GST Audit will be done GSTIN wise. For Example, Newtaxroute has units in Delhi having turnover Rs. 2 Crore, in Uttar Pradesh Rs. 2 Crore, and in Gujrat Rs. 2 Crore. The turnover is, therefore is Rs. 6 Crore. Therefore GST Audit is applicable to all its units.
