The Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) has suggested that the GST Network Portal system response should be enhanced to allow download, preview details and take prints for reconciliation before submission.
In a statement issued by CII on Sunday, it further proposed that GSTR-3B should have provision for rounding off Input Tax Credit to nearest rupee. This will match output tax liability which is rounded off, and be accepted in the system. According to CII, all modules of GSTN should be activated or enabled to amend core fields in registration to amend particulars of `principal place of business' or to declare `additional place of business' or file refunds, suggested CII. In view of these difficulties of online filing, CII suggested that the due dates for filing GSTR-1, GSTR-2 and GSTR-3 should be deferred for another month or two.This will stabilise the system. Further, there should be no penal action to be taken by the department in the initial six months of the GST launch. Meanwhile, alternate quick refund mechanism for IGST should be devised for exporters till the GSTN is ready to process these, suggested CII and requested for further extension to resolve certain system issues.
