Government extends filing of GSTR 1 for July till September 15

The government on Saturday said it is extending the deadline to file GSTR 1 for July by another five days, to September 15.
The government has also decided to form a 3-member inter-ministerial team to look at the technical issues around GSTN and the problems users were facing in uploading their returns on the portal. The decision was taken at the 21st Meeting of GST Council at Hyderabad on Saturday.

“Formation of the three member inter-ministerial panel to look at the functioning of GSTN to address issues pertaining to uploading of the returns on GSTN appears to be a good move. Hope this panel not only looks at the issues being faced, but more importantly provides quick resolution for the same,” says KPMG India, Partner-GST, Harpreet Singh.

According to the government 45 plus lakh GSTR-3B returns have been filed, and only 17 lakh GSTR-1 had been filed till Friday. Around 13 plus crore invoices had been filed. However, with the GST portal crashing frequently, there has been widespread outrage among taxpayers about their inability in filing returns.
