pri Notice for not filing Annual GST Returns before expiry of due date- Tax Terrorism? Notice for not filing Annual GST Returns before expiry of due date- Tax Terrorism?

Dye date to file Annual return GSTR 9/GSTR 9A for Financial Year 2017-18 is 31st August 2019 but CGST Delhi Zone has started issuing notice to those who have not filed such returns till date even before the expiry of due date i.e. 31st August 2019. In notice issued on 19th August 2019 it has called those who have not filed such return as defaulters although they still have time to file.

Interestingly Notice also ask to Comply within 7 days from the date of notice i.e. on or before 26th August while due date is 31st August 2019.

Notice clearly seems to be result of Over Enthusiasm of Officer and Pressure from Seniors and also shows the lack of any sympathy towards taxpayers from GST Officers and is clearly against the Recent Message of Honourable PM in which he has asked Tax Officers to Behave rationally with Taxpayers.

Such notices ads further fuels to talk of Tax Terrorism under Modi Government. Text of the notice and screenshot of the same is given below-

    If diferently percieved :
    The most important thing one is obliged to ASK is,- why taxpayers have to be constantly kept on tenderhooks ; for ages now, for no fault of them; but what is wholly and exclusively attributable to the fact of inept drafting- terms /phrases impudently used by the law- / rules- makers, withy unlimited authoritative powers, with locale in the “North or South Block ‘ with no second thought ?
    To briefly dilate :
    Filing “by” or “within the” or before expiry of the “due date”, “till date” or…., – such other equally insensible / absurd terms, interchangeably but inadvertently used, inherent with scope for potential controversies / otherwise easily avoidable disputes / litigation , to eternity ?-
    X instead of, far more clear language – SAY- “on or before the due date”
