Deemed supplies under Sch.I are part of aggregate turnover under GST. In table 5A however, the TO as per financials would have to be disclosed- i.e. 10 lakhs ONLY.
In table 5D the value of such supplies would have to be indicated. In this case 6 Cr.
The GST auditor u/s 35 (5) would require conduct the audit and report in Format I.

You're right, such a person will not be liable to audit under other laws although for limited purposes of GST law, 9-9C will be attracted.
In such a case, 5A will contain 10 lacs and 5O will contain minus 10 lacs plus 600 lacs so that it reconciles with TO as per GSTR9.
Also, in point 4 state that audit under other law is not required.

Answer ID :
As per Sec 2(13) Audit includes audit under GSt Act or rules & any other law.
Further in form GSTR-9C it is not defined turnover as per which Audited financial statement to be taken GSt Audit/Tax Audit/ Statutoty Audit (Companies Act).
Till now only format of Reconciliation Statement & Certification has been released by the GST department.
No official format & Guideline is available regarding GST Audit.
In further without proper guidelines we don't know turnover under GSt audit is turnover as per GSt Act or turnover as per tax Audit or books of Accounts.
So please enlighten me turnover under point 5A is Rs.10 lakh or Rs.600 Lakh?
