Same thing happened with Income Tax E Filing Website for over a week before the due date, however none from Finance Ministry or CBDT took cognizance of same except at last moment extending the due date and blaming Taxpayers for fault of last minute rush rather than looking into own house for errors and improvement.

Bureaucrats sitting in plush offices needs to be aware of ground realities and grievances of taxpayers rather than just focusing on achieving Targets of Tax Collection and in the process TARGETING the taxpayers. EARLIER THE BETTER.

Users can lodge grievance with higher authorities for service related issues of GST. I have already written how to do it, Find it here  http://taxguru.in/goods-and-service-tax/how-lodge-gst-related-complains-with-higher-authorities.html

  1. GANDHI MOHAN BHARATI says:

    Be it Income Tax or GST or other portals, crashes and non accessibility will arise due to many reasons.
    It may be even due to the Service Provider’s site being down or a telephone line fault.
    Instead of penalising Assessees or Customers, the Govt will do well to prescribe an office to receive manual Returns on the last day and give an acknowledgment Number to prove that it is NOT the fault of iler when he uploads the Return on a subsequent date.

  2. Mahaveer Bhandari says:

    The software company responsible for the GST have failed on home turf and this is not an isolated case. The hardware for the portal, whether designed and implemented according to the needs of very large tax payers, is in question. All over the world such portals do not seem to have problems as in India. Where and what is the glitch in the hardware or software? Someone from the technical side should come out with a honest answer to the tax paying public.

    In the course of extending and pushing the dates August is coming to end and as per the present due dates September also completes and the tax audits will be pushed to a corner which is more tension full job to complete. Till last minute Govt will not announce the extension and takes decision only when their websites crashes. By that time the professionals will be loosing the energy. At last they will extend for a week or few days which is of no use. The remedy for this is only unitedly all professional colleagues should take a decision and shut down their systems like earlier pen down strike. Other wise no remedy for this mischief. Shameful on the part of all respective departments for not taking care of the technical problems and requirements of servers etc to which can take the load even on last day. It is easy to advice for early filing without knowing the ground realities.

  4. CA. M. Lakshmanan says:

    It is not new for the tax paying public; formerly you will not be able to the pay ST on the last day; you will not be able to file ST Return on the last day; You will not be able to file the IT Return and Tax Audit Reports on the last day. Try and Try again and if you are not able to suceed you client will be fined for the fault of the exchequer and you will be scolded by the client.

  5. R K KOTIAN says:

    It is a pity that tax payers and professionals who assist them day and night are never respected. Their difficulties and problems are not addressed in due time. The Authorities say that due to last minute rush their systems are not able to take the load. This exactly is the situation with the professionals and the tax payers. The least requested from the Authorities is an ear to listen to the issues with a broader perspective and solve it for the better governance of this county. Ego of any one should not find a place any where in attempting a solution to the problems.

    GSTR-3B is a summary and requires furnish very few details. What will happen when GSTR-1 is to be uploaded. Yet Govt officials tries to hide their weakness in email informing extension.

  9. BODLA UPENDER says:

    LET THE GST COUNCIL HAVE MORE POWERS TO MONITOR GST WEBSITE. IT SHOULD WORK PROPERLY. THEN ONLY DEAD LINES INSISTED THE DEALERS FOR FILING RETURNS.I HOPE THAT THERE WILL BE LOT OF GST ACT AMENDMENTS IN FUTURE TO EASIER THE TAX PAYER FOR NOT HAVING DOUBTS ABOUT TAXATION OF GST.

  11. Kamal says:

    Regarding GST site crushing, what the Govt has said is “Due to flood in Bihar and other states, due to situation in Jammu & Kashmir, and as requested by dealers and professionals, the date has been extended. The blame is entirely on the people. The Govt should have accepted the reason for crush that the site was not working properly. Flood in Bihar and other states and situation in JK has not arisen on 19.08.2017 but the same is going since long. Why they have extended due date for all India instead of the affected states. The Govt should accept its fault.
