The provisions of Rule 36(4) have been amended considering the lockdown, therefore now 110% condition will apply cumulatively for GSTR 3B for the Months from February 2020 to August 2020, and the cumulative adjustment effect of 110% to ITC for Feb 2020 to Aug 2020   shall be given in return for the month of Sep 2020.
