Discontinue Late Filing Fees in GST 3B
This petition had 2,742 supporters
Govt of India introduced new GST system in India, without having the GST portal ready and imparting necessary training to it's citizens. Further to collect taxes and revenue, Form 3B was introduced which itself is a of temporary nature since GST forms prescribed by them were not available and since the GST system is new and all lack hands on experience, penalty of any sort is logically unjustified.
Further, late fees are not only levied by GST system to non filers but it is also being charged to citizens who submitted details (which were not editable on the portal) but failed to complete additional OTP feature on the portal. With all logics, earlier of submission or filing could have been considered as due compliance by tax payers however, govt decided to apply later of the submission or filing date rule and is levying penalty in nature of late fees @ Rs. 100 per day.
We strongly condemn this and request the GST Council to do away with Late Filing fees until a reasonable time and refund the amounts already paid by tax payers.
We pledge to pay our taxes to government timely but we shouldn't be penalized when we citizens and government both are implementing and learning on a new GST system.
