    Guys Need Not To Bother…At The Time Of Assessment We Will Explain The Authorities Physically.. Or Else Will Go To High Court….No Need Of Taking Tension.If One Cannot MCorrect His Mistakes In Annual Return Then What Is The Use Of This Return…

  2. Gopalan Nair K K says:

    Sir,
    Many of the Tax payers made inadvertent mistakes while filing TRAN-1, availment of ITC, Filing of GSTR-3B. Availment of Double payment of credits were also taken place in many occasion due to issues related to GST portal.
    We would like to know, any interest is imposed on Tax payers on such mistakes due to issues of GST Portal.

  3. vikas sharma says:

    i already filed return what can i do now. is it possible to claim input. i advised last date to claim input will be 31.12.2018.

  4. Shekar says:

    This kind of government approach is useful only who file returns on last date or who file returns after due date. When GSTR1 is extended , equivalently GSTR3B for the month september has to extend. otherwise it looks illogical.

  5. Chalapathi Modiyam says:

    On 18th Finance Ministry clearly announced that no date extension for filing GSTR-3B for September-18, we strictly workout our maximum efforts, not achieved full target, filed on 20th, again he declared date extension, what is the use, oxygen served after patient died

  6. Chalapathi Modiyam says:

    This is example how government playing with people, no value for sincerity, hard work. this is shameful

  7. ghanshyam singh says:

    govt ko ye nhi malum ki kaun sa kam pahle hona chahiye aur kaun sa kam bad unhe practical problem se koi matlab nahi ye sirf amendment krna jant hai abi tak to sara time gstr me hi lag gaya aur audit to pending hi rah gaya

  8. Manish Ahuja says:

    Due date extension after due date of 3B is just like…giving oxygen to patient after death.

  9. bada papa says:

    ye sare milkar hame pagal bana rahe

  10. kiran kumar says:

    bureacratic approach being silent up to dead line and after date is over issuing extension playing with the minds and troubling the tax payers and stake holders

  11. Dimple says:

    What can we do now when we have already filed the returns. How can we claim ITC now?

  12. prasanta kumar mishra says:

    It’s very shameful for the govt, to extend due date after expire of the previous due date..

  13. T. Sivakumar says:

    Totally not enough since tax payer need more time to verify and reconcile the input tax credit statement GSTR3B and GSTR2A. Because of it is very difficulty to find out particular month tax invoice in GSTR2A. For example a tax payer received tax invoice for the month of July 2017 and reported the same in their GSTR3B for the month of July 2017. But respective vendor reported the invoice in the month of September 2018. The receiver should verify their GSTR2A till September 2018 to reconcile the tax invoice, which reported in the July 2017 STR3B. GSTR2A should be update based on tax invoice date, those uploaded in the tax payer portal account after GSTR1 filed by respective supplier end. But current system is data is uploaded based on return period month only. So this is very difficulty to reconcile the ITC statement between GSTR3B and GSTR2A.
