GSTN statement on filing of GSTR-3B (October 2019)-  Dated 20th Nov. 2019

New Delhi: Certain complaints made yesterday on the social media regarding GSTN system not functioning are incorrect. GSTN assures that the GST Return filing system was working within expected limits. Had it not been so, how more than 11.52 lakh GSTR 3B (October) returns could have been filed yesterday on 19th Nov with about 1.82 lakh returns filed in a peak hour. Also, on 18th Nov more than 8.14 lakh returns were filed while today on 20th Nov more than 9.23 lakh GSTR 3B returns were filed by 4.00 pm and filing is going on smooth with 6.30 lakh returns filed between 12 to 4 pm.

Any online system has to have a load threshold and for GST return filing system it is at 1.5 lakh returns filing at a particular moment. If this threshold is reached then the site shows a message asking the taxpayer to wait for his turn in a few minutes.

Referring to complaints, it is stated that it could have been possible that some filers may have momentarily experienced being logged out at the load threshold of 1.5 lakh returns load at a particular point of time or some difficulty due to any local issue at the taxpayer filers’ end. But the GST return filing system has been working as expected and coherently and a total of more than 55.79 lakh returns were filed by 4.00 pm today.

The taxpayers are requested that they should not wait till the last three days to file their returns as normally there may be huge rush of return filing on these days. Rather they should file their return on days other than the last three days to avoid rush hour momentary difficulty in filing.

    Dear Sir / Madam,

    First department block GST registration for non-filling of GSTR-1 with in 15th of every month (after 4 days of grace). Otherwise all the taxpayers wait up to 20th every month because of more ITC credit accumulated only 20th of every month. Department advice to file before three day of due date. We accept department instruction but before department block the GST number of non-filling GSTR-1 with in specified date. Otherwise every day accumulated the ITC credit and day to day reconciliation is very time killing job and short claimed of ITC credit by taxpayer.

    Secondly, at the time of GSTR-2A data download, we are not finding the date of ITC credit comes to our GSTN or filling date. More than 2 years over still this type of implication is not provided GST network. Every time download the data and reconcile ITC. This taken more time for auditors, accountants etc…. Please provide date range for taxpayers for download the GSTR-2A data. It will help us reconciliation every day and also more user-friendly.

    In this regard, dear TG team please discuss with GST network team and provide for this necessary simplification.

    GSTIN should increasing the limit from 1.5 Lakhs to atleast 5 Lakhs. So, the tax payers can file their returns even on last day. Every time the Consultants & Tax Practitioners are blamed that they should file their returns before 3 days. Is it possible?

  5. Gurpreet Singh says:

    GSTN portal was down on 20th Nov 2019 for a few hours where it said that the taxpayer needs to wait for their turn. Also, with the new rule 36(4) which restricts the taxpayer to claim ITC at 120% of what is reflected in 2A, how can the GSTN expect taxpayers to file their returns before 3 days from the due date when so many monthly GSTR-1 filers do not file their returns by that time? This is unnecessary blocking of working capital of businesses due to technical limitations of the GSTN.

  6. HARJIT SINGH says:

    SITE WAS GIVING TROUBLE WE ALL ARE EYE WITNESS GOVT SHOULD NOT GIVE US STAT. THEY SHOULD KNOW HOW DIFFICULT AND TIME TAKING THE SITE IS

  7. KAILASH GOYAL says:

    One suggestion to overcome the difficulty to make available date wise gstr2 A and fix tax payment date as 20 th of the month by cas if any and return filing date as 25th to resolve the issue

    Lack of competence, poor governance. Miser government.

    Like TDS(IT) payment portal, GST portal should work properly, So Tax payer will not face this type of problem. Basically while making payment in time but it take much more time for crediting to ECL for set off liability. So department should take action on GST portal without blaming to tax payers.

  10. Pardha Saradhi says:

    I agreed that the GST portal is giving trouble while filing and killing our time have to wait at least 15-20 mnts to file one return. why don’t they take care about site problems instead of blaming tax payers.

    system was working within expected limits
    – It is only GSTN authority to decide expected limits without considering number of tax payers registered in GST regim. Expexted limit is limited to 1.5 lakhs assessess only as aginst total number could be more than 100 lakhs

    Had it not been so, how more than 11.52 lakh GSTR3B (October) returns could have been filed yesterday on 19th Nov with about 1.82 lakh returns filed in a peak hour. Also, on 18th Nov more than 8.14 lakh returns were filed while today on 20th Nov more than 9.23 lakh GSTR 3B returns were filed by 4.00 pm and filing is going on smooth with 6.30 lakh returns filed between 12 to 4 pm.
    – This absolute true, when for facts mentioned above, if GSTN does not recognises need to update system. Alternatively returns filed numbers could have been even on higher side as mentioned by GSTN.
    To Sum up, for GST , GSTN is god and assessee should pray to GSTN without delivering contarary statements , which i made above. God GSTN please forgive me.
