Hello Everyone,

Let us start our discussion on the latest notifications issued by the CBIC on 10th of November 2020 Regarding New Schemes of GST Returns effective from 1st January 2021

To Understand all these notifications, first of all we need to understand section 39 of CGST Act…


Section – 39 Describes the form and Manner of furnishing of Returns under GST Law. For Simplifi-cation of GST and Compliances, govt. has come up with New scheme of GST Returns and issued certain Notifications for that purpose Let us discuss one by one each and every Notification and develop our understanding……..


This Notification Simply Says that All the New provisions (i.e. Amended) of section – 39 (i.e. Furnishing of returns) has been appointed from 10th of November 2020.

Note : – The New provisions which was inserted by Govt. will be discussed in next notifica-tions.

Conclusively we can say that this notification is just related to the date of applicability of Section – 39.


Through this notification govt. has inserted certain rules for implementing New and Simplified GST Compliance Procedure.

Before Discussing these Rules we have to know one important aspect about new and simplified GST Return Procedure. In the New Scheme of GST Returns, GSTR – 3B Return will be auto – populated from the data of GSTR – 1 (Output Details) and GSTR – 2B(Input Details) effective from 1st January 2021 hence, if there is no any change in the data of GSTR-1 filed by us and also filed by our supplier then there is no need to change the auto – populated data of GSTR-3B and if there is any change then we may edit GSTR- 3B. From this procedure the chances of error got reduced.

Now, Let us Discuss the Rule No. 59
