Issues Disclosed: Why 7 States Does Not Want to Pass SGST? As the deadline given by the government to implement the GST is only one month away, there are still 7 states who have not passed State GST bill. Apart from Jammu and Kashmir ruled by the BJP-PDP alliance in these states, states like West Bengal and Tamil Nadu also needs to pass a bill to implement GST in their states. As of now, 24 states and Union Territories have passed the GST Bill while the remaining states are Meghalaya, Punjab, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Jammu and Kashmir and West Bengal which are still required to pass the State GST (SGST) bill. Going by the ruling, all these states, except for Jammu and Kashmir are non-BJP while the Central Government is fully prepared to implement the Goods and Services Tax, covering 16 different taxes, from July 1. Coming to the soaring conditions of West Bengal, leader Mamata Banerjee, has demanded the central government to avoid deadline for implementing GST law. Speaking on this issue, West Bengal’s Finance Minister Amit Mitra cleared that there are a lot of difficulties in implementing the GST from July 1 as we still do not have the necessary infrastructure to manage the new tax scheme. As of now, GST has been implemented in 200-300 companies of each state as an experiment. But many rules have been changed in May. Coming to the Jammu Kashmir issues, it is being defied by the political leaders which are under pressure from local community to mould the policies accordingly while Meghalaya, Punjab kerala & Karnataka are stuck into the political menace as various issues regarding the feasibility and technological capabilities are still not developed to support the upcoming GST. Now it is up to the Union Finance Minister to decide whether such a major reform should be implemented without any preparation. According to the rules, all the states will have to pass the state GST bill till September 15, 2017, and if in case the state does not pass the bill before the deadline, then the rights of levying taxes will be taken from the particular state.
Request for Extend due date of filing ITRs of 31st July, 2017 to 30th Sep, 2017 Due to the implementation of the GST law from 01.07.2017 and the necessity of linking of PAN with Aadhaar Number from 01.07.2017 while filing ITR, has caused severe problems to tax-payers. When the last date for filing ITR approaches the income tax e-filing site suffers great slowdown thereby leading to delay in filing the same as also once the session of login at e-filing portal is over the user has to re-enter the required details for login which involves a great hectic for the user especially in reference to the tax consultants, chartered accountants who file the large number of ITRs of their clients. Not only this, sometimes it also happens that the site goes under repair or shows technical problems in last days, even at the eleventh hour of filing the ITRs, which leads to the waste of the valuable time of the persons filing the ITRs . Therefore, looking to the above problems, keeping in view the interests of the taxpayers the e-filing site should be made more well equipped with the functions which provide the users of the site to restore the work done by them before the hanging up of the site and such breakdown of the site must be prevented. Assessees are getting messages for filing their ITR on due date of 31 July. The welfare of the honest taxpayers also lies in providing of the basic e-filing facilities and timely availability of the income tax e-filing site in working condition for the online submission of ITRs. In view of these hardships, faced by the users until the e-filing site is made more secured and strong enough the due date for the filing of returns must be extended in order to protect the taxpayers who are willing to file timely ITRs but due to the problems inherited in the site they are finding it difficult to do so on “due date”. As per Explanation 2 of section 139(1) of the Income Tax Act, 1961, for the purposes of the sub-section (1) of section 139, “due date” means, — × (a) where the assessee [other than an assessee referred to in clause (aa)] is— (i) a company; or (ii) a person (other than a company) whose accounts are required to be audited under this Act or under any other law for the time being in force; or (iii) a working partner of a firm whose accounts are required to be audited under this Act or under any other law for the time being in force, the 30th day of September of the assessment year; (aa) in the case of an assessee who is required to furnish a report referred to in section 92E, the 30th day of November of the assessment year; (b) in the case of a person other than a company, referred to in the first proviso to this sub-section, the 31st day of October of the assessment year; (c) in the case of any other assessee, the 31st day of July of the assessment year. Therefore, keeping in view the hard realities due date, 31 July of filing income tax return should be extended to 30.09.2017 as correction in the PAN and Aadhaar, wherever is not linking, is also taking time and there are problems of internet, e-filing site and works relating to newly implemented GST.

GSTN Chairperson Cleared Doubts and Questions Regarding GST Rollout Navin Kumar the chairperson of GST Network assured that the IT platform will be available for the full usage from July 15 and the stabilization will only come after 3 to 4 months after the roll of GST. Some of the questions were raised in front of him which was answered in his own way: What are the insights about the upcoming GST roll out and what are the workings? On this question, he answered that “We are very, very stressed now. We are working 28 hours a day.” Asking about the public need of knowledge and the question that many people must be approaching you for all their registration needs the Chairperson replied that, “Industry generally talks to the government, but, yes, we keep getting tweets and messages. There was some problem when enrolment was on and the tax department cancelled a lot of registered service taxpayers that had got provisional IDs as they were apparently not active. These 50-60 people lined up at our office. We then referred the matter to the tax department and it was resolved.” The confidence also rose over the testing of the software, as the chairperson assured that the software is fairly working while also mentioning that the beta test could not be possible. He said that “It should be a stable system. Problems that surfaced during the first phase of the testing have been resolved. We did the testing on the basis of the rules that came in December. After that, some changes were made to the rules. Those changes we have absorbed now, so there is no time to do beta testing for that. Other than that, we have done all other tests. So, we are fairly confident of the system.” While asking about the July launching the chairperson was reluctant and mentioned some strict policies which must be handled before the launching. He said that “If we had more time, we would have been perhaps better-placed. When we started with Infosys, the GST was not in sight. The Constitution Amendment Bill was still in Parliament and we were in a dilemma. The project was costing Rs 1, 400 crore. Could we make a commitment when the GST is not there? We went to the empowered committee of state finance ministers and apprised them of the situation. Our proposal was to let us develop the software and hold back on the hardware, where all the money goes. They agreed and allowed us to work on the draft processes. The software development started after the draft law was approved. The model law was put in the public domain in May and was revised in November, and the rules were given in December. All the development till then was modified on the basis of the December rules. After the central registration, there have been further revisions, necessitating more changes in the software. Thankfully, those are not very many.” And asking about the final completion he mentioned that, “We have been working on that. For return form GSTR 1, the coding has been done and the testing is also at a very advanced stage. By July 15, GSTR 1 will be ready. GSTR 2 will be ready by the end of July and GSTR 3 will be ready 10 days after that. But you have to see how things have evolved. So, we are just in time. But the good thing is that the GST Council did not defer the roll-out. Starting from July 1, the system will be available in a staggered fashion.” While discussing the API issues and relatively lesser available APIs to the GSPs was creating problems and the chairperson stated that “When we developed the software based on the December rules, we provided APIs to GSPs. But half of them thought of waiting until the legislation was in place as it would have gone through changes. These are people who did not work on the basis of the December APIs. But there are others who did so. Through discussion, we have worked out timelines for GSTR 1, GSTR 2, and GSTR3. We will give them GSTR 1 by June 28 so that they can be ready for the invoice upload facility by July 15. The other two APIs for GSTR 2 and 3 will be given after that.”
