To,

  • Hon. Chairman, GST Council, New Delhi.
  • The Hon. Chief Commissioner of State Tax -SGST, Ashram Road, Ahmedabad, Gujarat.
  • The Hon. Chief Commissioner of Central Tax-CGST, Ambawadi ,Ahmedabad.

Respected Sirs,

Subject : Request to extend time limit to file GST return 3B due to Non Working of GST Website.

It has been observed that since last few months filling of GST Return 3B on or before 3 to 4 days of due dates has been in constant struggle mode. Dealers are not able to pay taxes due to abnormalities of GST portal. We have received number of complaints from all over Gujarat. In the current scenario even if dealer desire to pay the taxes, he can’t pay due to non working of GST portal. These genuine dealers are penalized in next month by way of late fees which is absolutely inhuman. Moreover this resulted in to delay in timely payment of tax and getting revenue within stipulated time to the government. Site is not working properly since the last 3 days. We request you to kindly extend the dates and give relief to tax payers from Late fees.

Hoping for your kind and positive revert.

For, The Gujarat Sales Tax Bar Association,

Nitin D. Thakker
President

    ALL TAX PORTAL AUDIT SHOULD BE DONE IMMEDIATELY AND DUE TO TAX PORTAL PENALTIES ARISES TO TAX PAYERS SHOULD BE REVERSE IMMEDIATELY.
    NEW TAX SYSTEM IS NOT 1 YEARS AND 3 MONTHS OLD.
    UNTILL IT DON`T WORK FINE GOVERMENT SHOULD ENABLE OFFLINE SYSTEM AS USUAL.
    HOPE GST COUNCILL WILL TAKE NOTICE IN THIS VIEW

  2. SRINIVAS says:

    I am trying to file GSTR3B from 3.30 pm to 7.30 pm i am unable to file due to save request for under process. I also raise the complaint for the same.

  3. DINESH says:

    EVERY WHERE LOOTS SMALL BUSINESS PEOPLE ONE SIDE GOVT. WORKERS WITH BRIBE, BANKS WITH CHARGES NOW THE CENTRAL GOVT. IN FORM OF LATE FEES ON GST AND INCOME TAX. IF GOVT. NOT ABLE PROVIDE UPDATED PORTAL, THEN HOW THEY CAN LEVY LATE FEE. GOVT. GIVES ADVT. MADE SIMPLE AND EASY RETURN MODULE. WE PEOPLE ALSO SAME LIKE EVERY TIME WE ARE BEGGING FOR EXTENSION. WE MUST WAKE UP AND ASK GOVT. TO REMOVE LATE FEE SECTION FOR SMALL BUSINESS AT LEAST TILL 2CR TURNOVER.

  4. Ramanathan M L says:

    I do agree, the portal was giving some problem. However I could file my return. I also filed few returns on Saturday, 18.8.18, the portal was very fast. One should try file the return little early n authorities too look into hassles keep coming now and then

  5. Venantius ACG says:

    you are right. late fees and penal amount finds major portions of revenue collection. Governance on this regularisation of filing in time eyeing upon inability of tax payers to represent and plead in the last moment when portal goes astray and recovers unknowingly wiping traces of its malfunctioning. Absence of revised return is to ensure collection of late fee without giving room for the tax payers to set things right. user can not escape his agony and pressure of incomplete work as the rout follows month after month and cant update current month on hand .As delayed morning trains are delayed further to enter junction after middday. marks are awarded as certification once delayed always delayed. No track of event can be recorded for future prayers as the portal is the supreme authority hiding its inefficiency and non accessible to user when resorted. Timely intervention by developing team will enhance the morale and expectations of the users allowing margin for delay which is inevitable and not intentional as we thrive to complete tasks in time

  6. Shiv Raj Kalia says:

    Himachal Pradesh and Utterkhand are Flood Hit states hence extension for filing of GSTR3B in these states is required.

    MOST URGENT

  7. rm says:

    kindly publish the certifying agency details and copy of iso certificate for gstin portal clearance for quality check for public utility/

  8. Srinivas R says:

    why no one is asking for revised return option, due to urgency and more no. of sheets to fill in, we miss some figures, why can’t give an opportunity to file revised return before finalizing our Balance sheet.

  9. ABHIJIT MAJUMDAR says:

    ACTUALLY IT IS A MODUS OPERANDY OF GOVT TO COLLECT A LARGE AMT OF LATE FEES, FROM THE DEALERS,lATE FEES OF rS 50 PER DAY IS A HUGE AMT.MY REQUEST TO THE LEARNED ADVOCATES AND TAX CONSULTANTS FRATERNITY TO RAISE STRONG CONCERN AGAINST THE LATE FEE.FIRST GOVT SHOULD MAKE THE GST WEBSITE HASSEL FREE THEN IT SHOULD INTODUCE LATE FEES

  10. tarun sethi says:

    same problem we face in delhi….we also seek extension of last date……..one thing i wanted to say here that one year has been passed but still lot of problem faced by the user on portals…..without robust IT system GST is of no use… even on the last date GST helpline also shut their services making the taxpayers on lurch of paying heft penalties…systems should be audited by expert and accountability must be assigned

  11. Krishna Kumaran Nair.T.R says:

    The entire Kerala State is severely affected by an unprecedented flood. We request to extend the date by at least 15 days.

  12. Dev says:

    one of the worst Website Management by the Govt. Its not only the Website is not working, there are interest and late filing fees due to non-submission of Return. I personally worked and only able to file 3 returns in 3 hours. Its also a loss of Manpower in the peak time of Income Tax Return Filing.

  13. Kantilal says:

    Duly keyed in GSTR3B also shows as save request received when go for payment and than remain under process. GSTIN portal authority shall realize that majority tax payer pay and file return in last 3-4 days. They must manage portal accordingly..

  14. Vaidyanathan H K says:

    During VAT regime previously, Karnataka VAT portal was excellent. There was no problem in respect of filing of returns and also amendments. GST Portal very badly framed. Lot of confusion, problem and trouble to dealers. It his high time Central Govt and concerned authorities should work out properly to avoid all these anomalies.

  15. m g raman says:

    last 2 days tin-nsdl site also not accessible. Govt. sites r developed by TOP LEVEL SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS. Then why do sites like GST, i-I, NSDL, MCA site become dys-functional ever so often. A top level enquiry is certainly needed. Tax-payer’s money should be utilised to develop efficient & functional systems.

  16. RM says:

    GSTIN PORTAL INFORMATION SYSTEM AUDIT BY DISA/CISA BE MADE PUBLIC IN PARLIAMENT AND STATE ASSEMBLIES OF GSTIN COUNCIL MEMBERS BEFORE GST ANNUAL RETURNS AND AUDIT FOR GAINING PUBLIC CONFIDENCE IN GSTIN PORTAL TO WITH STAND AND CAPTURE VOLUMES AND COMPLEXITY OF ENTIRE NATION INDIRECT TAXES. BUSINESS COMMUNITY SUFFERING MAY SPELL DOOM FOR BJP ELECTORAL PROSPECTS. HENCE ATAL AND DURABLE SOLUTION IS NEED OF THE HOUR.

  17. RM says:

    IT IS HIGH TIME THAT, BOTH OFF LINE AND ONLINE MODES OF PAYMENT BE ACCEPTED IN GST COUNTERS AND ALSO THROUGH ONLINE RTGS/NEFT/NET BANKING LIKE TELEPHONE AND ELECTRICITY/MUNICIPAL/ WATER WORKS DEPT PAYMENTS. THE GSTIN PORTAL SHOULD HAVE DEVISED SUCH ALTERNATIVES MODES OF PAYMENTS LONG BACK INSTEAD OF FLEECING MONEY FROM TAX PAYERS BY WAY OF LATE FEES AND PENALTIES, MINIMUM BALANCE BANK CHARGES ETC TO BREAK COLLECTION RECORDS BUT POOR INDIAN BUSINESSMEN ND PEOPLE SUFFERING – ATAL SOLUTION REQUIRED FOR PROMOTING BUSINESS GST

  18. HEMANT SIKKA says:

    They are just making us fool and not able to resolve any issue when we call to help line they just say lodge the issue on portal then why they are taking salary and sitting there
    Even they donot bother to know about the issue.

  19. RVM says:

    SYSTEM FAILURE BOTH FROM DEPT AND DEALERS- AUTOMATION OF ENTIRE NATIONS INDIRECT TAXES DATA BASE AND COMPLEXITIES ARE NOT ABLE TO CAPTURE IN GSTIN PORTAL PARTICULARLY RELATED TO PUBLIC UTILITY PROJECTS IN RURAL AREAS. INTERVENTION OF INFORMATION SYSTEMS AUDITORS VIZ: DISA-CISA AUDIT IS NEED OF HOUR. FAILURE OF GST CAN MAKE DENT IN BJP PROSPECTS AT CENTRE.SINCE IMPACTING BUSINESS COMMUNITY/PUBLIC

  20. Rajesh Singhal says:

    The GST portal should be technically perfect first. Helpline needs to be adequate for this tasks. But nothing sufficient has been done so far. The present govt staff is of no use. They don’t not sufficient . Get trained them .

  21. Murthy says:

    The GSTIN is down for so many days, I was unable pay tax mto pay nor able to file, they should improve the working of server, people pay and tax in or around 20th of the month, when govt has given time till that, where is the money to pay tax.So govt should extend. date for filing return

  23. Pranay J Luthia says:

    Govt’s. is total failure in implementation of GST Procedure vis-a-vis GST Return filing Tool. Please improve your website first than think of Tax Checks.

    1. Manjunatha says:

      Yes GST Portal needs to be improved. On the other hand GST consultants and CA’ s should file the returns of their clients at least 3-4 days earlier .they keep it for the last day .

  24. Gurmeet Singh says:
