According to a news agency report, the Revenue Secretary said: "We have kept long deadlines for GST filing". "There are always initial hiccups and issues, but there haven't been large-scale failures", Adhia was quoted as saying when asked about the problems being faced by users of the network.

Government on Saturday ruled out any further extension in filing of returns under GST after December and advised the taxpayers to file them in advance and not wait for the last day.

Bihar Deputy Chief Minister and BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi, who heads the GoM, said that it would be only by October 30 that the government would be able to iron out 70-80 per cent of the technical issues being faced in return filing.

Sushil Modi said only 3.3 lakh taxpayers had filed the summary return, GSTR-3B, for the month of August, just five days before the deadline ends on September 20. For July, over 47 lakh taxpayers had filed GSTR 3B return for July.

Modi said the group of ministers has interacted with Infosys, which is providing the technical support to the government, and told it to sort out the problems on priority basis. The total number of registrants under GST is 85 lakh, which includes about 23.18 lakh new taxpayers and 62.25 lakh taxpayers who have migrated from the earlier VAT, excise and service tax regime.

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.

It was decided that GoM would hold meeting every 15 days and the next meeting would be held again in Bengaluru in the beginning of October.

"The attempt was to work around the difficulties to eliminate problems, leading to better understanding of all stakeholders". Besides, it also extended the filing dates of full-fledged return for July by a month.
