Date 24.01.2020


Smt. Nirmala Sitharamanji,
Hon Union Finance Minister of India &
Chairman GST Council

Sub:-Request to extension of GSTR-9 and GSTR-9C report for the year 2017-18 reg.

Respected Madam,

We have been informed by our members and professionals that since 9th January 2020, GST network is slow down and not working properly. OTP for filing of any returns is not frequent and many of Tax Payers have already suffered with the late fees even after wanted to finish their compliance timely. We have also come to know that at present, GST Network is taking two to three hours for reflecting GSTR9C data uploaded by Tax Payers, and in some cases; it throw back with unknown error. We are aware that GSTN is ought to release API with slight modification in schema on 20th Jan for GSTR9C; but yet not declared it. And hence, our demand for extension is more reasonable as ever.

As you may be aware that due date for GSTR-9 and GSTR-9C for FY 2017-18 is 31.01.2020; but due to system problem our members are unable to file / upload GSTR-9 and GSTR-9C.

Hence, we request your good selves to kindly extend the date of filling GSTR-9 and GSTR-9C for the FY 2017-18 atleast up to 31.3.2020.

Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,


Extension of GSTR-9 and GSTR-9C
