GSTR-3B extended till Jun, Eway bill from Apr: Jaitley


In the 26th GST council meet, which was headed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, the council members made a decision to extend the existing system of filing returns by another three months.

"As GST return filing is taking time to stabilise, eway bill can help detect and reduce tax evasion. The existing system has been extended by three months", Jaitley told reporters after the council's meeting.

The council also chose to retain the current tax return filing system for another three months before it could be replaced with a simpler version with safeguards against tax evasion.

The Minister also said that a decision on a simplified tax form is yet to be taken as apart from the option already under discussion, an officers committee also presented an alternate model for GST returns to the Council. The E-way bill was originally rolled out for inter-state supplies from February 1,2018 but was deferred again following system (IT) issues. The e-way bill, which would be required to be presented to a GST inspector if asked for, is being touted as an anti-evasion measure and would help boost tax collections by clamping down on trade that now happens on cash basis.
