The Group of Ministers (GoM) set up to look into the technical issues faced by Goods and Services Tax Network (GSTN) headed by Bihar's Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi is hopeful of resolving 80 % of the problems in filing tax returns by October 30. "Only five days left for August filing and only 3.05 lakh have filed form 3B compared to more than 45 lakh in there will be a rush". "So, there are a few glitches initially", said Modi, who attended nearly all tax related meetings during 2007-13.

"We have already extended the period for GSTR-3B".
