Ref. No.: 3189/1/50
Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman
Hon’ble Minister for Finance
Government of India
Dear Smt. Sitharaman Ji,
Subject: Extension of due dates of various GST return falling in the month of April-2021
We invoke your kind and immediate attention to the follo\ving statutory dates in the 1nonth of April 2021 by which the traders have to file their different GST returns. In view of the steep rise in COVID cases in several States, the respective State Governments have taken various strict precautionary measures such as Night Curfew, Lockdown, containment zones, etc. restricting the movement of people to restrict the spread of Covid-19 in their states. During these difficult and stressful times, many taxpayers will not be able to compile/ provide the details for filing their GST returns on or before due dates so the late compliances on part of trade being not deliberate, the late fee should be waived off permanently till the situation gets normal in the country and it is requested that all the following due dates may be extended for next three months.
We are sure that it will receive your kind and immediate attention and you will be pleased to take necessary action immediately.
With kind regards
Confederation of All India Traders
