GOM on GST Network to resolve 80% IT issues by 30 Oct

17 September 2017

Earlier this week, various states had raised the technical glitch issues while filing the GST returns.

As FE had reported earlier, the GST Network had blamed the big taxpayers for flooding the system with invoices while filing the full return in the first week of the month. When asked to specify the nature of glitches, revenue secretary Hasmukh Adhia said some assessees were having problems in changing the nature of registration on the system.

"Initial hiccups are there but no mass scale failure.

GSTN and Infosys also had a long meeting with the tax consultants and experts, who are handling more than 1,000-1,500 dealers at a time", he said. However, GoM headed by Mr. Modi has said crowding will aggravate the issues and hence the dealers must not wait till the last date.

According to Modi, around 47 lakh GSTR 3B returns were filed for the month of July, but only 3.05 lakh returns have so far been filed for the month of August.

"Infosys have given us updates and a timeframe by which date, which thing will be implemented, which thing can be improved and I think by October 30, we will be able to solve 70-80 per cent of the problems", Modi said.

Modi, who's also the deputy chief minister of Bihar, appealed to traders to avoid last minute rush to file taxes, which would overload the IT network.

Almost 80 officials of commercial tax department of different states held marathon meetings on Friday with all stakeholders such as dealers, tax consultants and software experts to understand numerous challenges faced by them.

As each dealer had to register with PAN and Aadhaar numbers and comply with the norms applicable to them under the GST regime, they have been also facing procedural problems, as some of the forms to be filled were not yet uploaded on the portal.

The five-member GoM, which held its first meeting here, was set up on September 12 to look into the technical issues faced by the GST Network and address them in consultation with all stakeholders and its vendor, Infosys Ltd. "We'll discuss it in our next meeting and we'll see the status of implementation", Modi said. GSTR-3, which is the match of GSTR-1 and GSTR-2, was needed to be filed by September 30. "The attempt was to work around the difficulties to eliminate problems, leading to better understanding of all stakeholders", he added. "So, for 6 months people have to file their self-assessed summary return by 20th of the next month and there is not going to be any extension of time as far as 3B is concerned", he said.
