Financial Chronicle - - PLAN, POLICY - FC BUREAU

THE cen­tral board of in­di­rect tax and cus­toms (CBIC) has ad­vised field of­fi­cers to per­suade non-fil­ers to file their re­turns in GSTR-3B and sort out is­sues with state tax of­fi­cers to avoid dif­fer­ences be­tween re­fund sanc­tioned and their dis­bur­sal.

In a com­mu­ni­ca­tion to the field staff, CBIC chief Vanaja N Sarna said Bhubanesh­war zone had is­sued more than 10,000 no­tices to tax­pay­ers for not fil­ing re­turns. Fol­low­ing this, these as­sessees filed re­turns and paid Rs 280 crore in cash.

While ap­pre­ci­at­ing this, she ex­horted of­fi­cers in other zones to carry out sim­i­lar drive for fil­ing re­turns.

Fol­low­ing the roll­out of GST, there have been re­ports of differing views be­tween cen­tral and state tax of­fi­cials.
