April, 2024 – Issue No. III

GST

a) GSTN has noticed that taxpayers are facing difficulties in filing GSTR-1 intermittently since 10/4/24 due to technical issues leading to slow response on the portal. GSTN has accordingly recommended to CBIC that the due date for filing of GSTR-1 for the monthly taxpayers be extended by a day i.e. till 12/4/24.

b) This has reference to the facility for re-filing of GSTR-3B for some of the taxpayers. It was noticed that there were discrepancies in the returns of some taxpayers during the filing process between the saved data in the GST system and actually filed data in the fields of ITC availment and payment of tax liabilities. The matter was examined and deliberated by the Grievance Redressal Committee of the GST Council and as a facilitation measure the Committee decided that these returns shall be reset, in order to give opportunity to such taxpayers to correct the discrepancy. Accordingly, only the affected taxpayers have been communicated on their registered email-ids and the affected returns are visible on their respective dashboards for the purpose of refiling with the correct data. The taxpayers who have received such communication, are requested to visit their dashboard and re-file their GSTR-3B within 15 days of receipt of such communication. You may reach out to your jurisdictional tax officer or may raise ticket of GST grievance redressal portal, in case you face any difficulty in re-filing of such GSTR-3B.
