Hyderabad Zone to push for GST returns filing

Hyderabad, July 2:Hyderabad Zone which has topped the nation in terms of GST refunds is now keen to improve the GST filing returns compliance. Bankey Behari Agrawal, Chief Commissioner, GST & Customs, Hyderabad Zone, told , "While the GST filing returns average across the nation stood at an average of 87 per cent, with certain zones witnessing 94 per cent compliance, Hyderabad Zone has experienced the returns filings at 85 per cent, during July 2017-March 2018 period."
"We are telling the taxpayers if they have a problem, they should come to us. We are making a strong request to them to file their returns. People skipping filing returns as they were doing in the past, will not happen now. They should also realise that GST is an IT-based tax. If they don't file returns, they will lose their buyers, particularly in the B2B. The time has come that they have file returns and they will have leave their old habits. From the government side, adequate facilities are provided for filing returns. There is no excuse for these 15 per cent to file returns." he added.
Central GST team is stepping up stern measures to improve GST returns filing, including transit verifications and are booking cases based on the intelligence. If the trend continues, harsh measures will be taken against those who are not filing returns, even if they have nil returns, he warned.
Agrawal said, "There needs to be an improvement in the overall compliance in terms of filing GST returns and the department is stepping up enforcement measures. We have already dealt with 23 cases involving Rs 41 crore dues, and have recovered Rs 22 crore. All the assessees are being reached and any deficiencies are being followed up. We are not going to be strict against violations. Beyond a point, if we have to arrest, we will arrest."
Hyderabad Zone has about 3.25 lakh taxpayers (one crore across India) and of them there are 60,000 composition dealers. Of the 3.25 lakh taxpayers, Centre has over 1 lakh and State has over 2 lakh.
