GST officers have identified top 25,000 taxpayers who last month filed GST returns but have not yet done so for November and would personally follow up with them by sending SMS and email communications, sources said.
After a high-level review meeting of the Revenue Department officers, it was also decided that GST registration cancellation process can be started for about 5.43 lakh taxpayers who have not filed their returns for the last six or more months.
GST Network, which handles the IT backbone for Goods and Services Tax, along with tax officials would persuade these 25,000 taxpayers who have defaulted on the filing of GSTR-3B returns by the due date, i.e., by November 20, 2020, for the month of October.
