    Dear Sir/Mam,

    I have filed Original Service tax return for half yearly Oct – Mar’2016 return on 5th April with the excel utility version shown on 01.04.2016(ACES). On 07.04.2016 I saw that the excel utility was revised with the latest version on 06.04.2016, than I filed Revised Service tax return on 08.04.2016. On the same day(08.04.20106) again the excel utility was revised.

    I know i can revise my ST-3 return once within 90 days from the date of filing the original return. Now, I will not be able to again revised my return. I want to correct the error(s) in the ST-3 & generate a new xml file and upload the same once again. So that I can file my return error free.

    Please Help.

    Thanks & Regards

    Manisha Batra
