Due date for GSTR 9 and GSTR 9C

The decision to extend the due date of GST Annual Return and Reconciliation Statement filing for the Financial year 2019-20 was taken on the last date i.e 28th February 2021 of furnishing the return.

If Government was really considerate about the hardships faced by the professionals in meeting the deadlines or about the taxpayers then this extension which was given merely 6 hours before the deadline would have been granted way earlier. In my opinion, this extension was granted as the number of returns and reconciliation statements filed was very less compared to Financial Year 2017-18 & 2018-19.

An announcement for the due date extension was issued for GSTR 9 and GSTR 9C as a press note from the official Twitter handle of CBIC at 6:12 pm.  A CGST Notification no. 4 has been issued in this regard on 28th February 2021
