New Delhi, Feb 22: The New Year saw as many as 55 lakh Goods and Services (GST) returns being filed for the month of January so far in line with a rising curve of assessees under the country’s new indirect tax regime, GST Network (GSTN) Chairman Ajay Bhushan Pandey said on Wednesday.

The last date for filing initial GSTR-3B sales returns for any month is the 20th of the subsequent month. Businesses, however, can continue to file returns after that date on payment of a late fee.

“The total number of GST-3B returns filed in the month of January till date is 55 lakh,” Pandey told reporters here.

As per GSTN data, 56.30 lakh GSTR-3B returns were filed in December bringing in Rs 86,703 crore of revenue.

In November 53.06 lakh such returns were filed for a total revenue to the exchequer of Rs 80,808 crore.

Meanwhile, the Union Fince Ministry said on Wednesday that GST collection figures for January would be released officially at a later date.(IANS)
