Tax Bar Association, Guwahati requested Hon’ble Union Finance Minister for extension of due date for filing of GST Annual Return Forms GSTR 9, 9A & 9C for the year 2017-18 till 31st March, 2020, in order to mitigate the hardship of taxpayers and professionals. Text of the Representation is as follows:-

Dated: January 27, 2020

To
Hon’ble Finance Minister
Govt. of India
New Delhi

Respected Madam,

Sub: Request for extension of due date for filing of GST Annual Return Forms GSTR 9, 9A & 9C for the year 2017-18.

Tax Bar Association, Guwahati is a prestigious professional association having membership strength of 450 members consisting of Chartered Accountants, Company Secretaries, Cost Accountants, Advocates and Tax Consultants.

The extended due date for filing of GST Annual Return Forms GSTR9, 9A & 9C for the year 2017-18 is 31st January, 2020. However, we have been informed by our members and many taxpayers that the same could not be filed in many cases due to the following reasons:

1. GST network/ GST website is slow down and not working properly since first week of January and OTP for filing of returns were not received in several cases. The OTP is received after 2-3 hours which is of no use at that point of time.

2. Uploaded data in case of GSTR 9C is reflected after 2 to 3 hours and in many cases the same was rejected for unknown error.

3. The error “Received but pending” apperas as and when we try to uplaod GSTR 9C.

4. We are unable to uplaod JSON file in one attempt. Multiple attempts are required to upload a single JSON file.

Therefore due to reasons mentioned herein above and the hardships that are being faced by millions of tax payers, we request your good self to extend date of filing of GST Annual Return Forms GSTR-9, 9A & 9C for the year 2017-18 till 31st March, 2020, in order to mitigate the hardship of taxpayers and professionals.
