    Dear Experts, can we expect any due date extension for GSTR3B returns. Because extension of due date for GSTR9/9C gave big relief to Big Traders. But large number of small traders are in need of GSTR3B extension. May Govt/Dept will give a positive move. Or Is it better to move for filing of GSTR3B for bending months?

  2. Anand Vidyarthi says:

    It was very much justified to do so. But why this last moment action, when the reasons are obvious?? Why to boost the Blood Pressure, when the deadly Virus is out there. Atleast improve now or never.
