GST Council to form panel to oversee technical glitches in filing returns

Hyderabad - In view of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) filing portal encountering increasing technical glitches, the Council has decided to set up a five-member ministerial panel to oversee its functioning and smoothen the process, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said.

The return filing date deadline of GSTR-1 for July, that was to end on September 10, has also been extended by a month till October 10.

The Council also decided to reduce tax rates on approximately 30 goods and increased the cess on high-end cars.

"Since the work is huge, the Council decided a new schedule itself for filing returns. Because of the load on the system, we want to give adequate time to taxpayers," Jaitley told reporters after the meeting.

"There are transient challenges in technology. The Council decided to appoint a committee, the composition of which will be announced in a day or two. It will consist of ministers who will interact with GST to ensure a smooth transformation," he said.

The decision was taken after the Council reviewed the functioning of the GST Network (GSTN) platform. A detailed presentation was given to the members by GSTN officials.

Jaitley said the portal did face technical glitches on two-three occasions due to overload. 

He also said that in consonance with the recommendations of the fitment committee, the tax rates on approximately 30 goods of common man's utility, including raincoats, rubberbands and batter for idli and dosa, have been reduced. 

Khadi fabric through Khadi and Village Industries Commission Act of 1956 (KVIC) stores will now be exempted under GST. 

Talking about the increase in cess rates on automobiles, he said that while status quo has been maintained for small cars (petrol and diesel), hybrid cars and 13-seater vehicles, the Council decided to increase the cess rates for some segments.

GST cess on mid-segment cars has been increased by 2%, for large segment cars it has been increased by 5% and for SUVs by 7%, he said.
