The necessary software changes are being carried out in the IT system. Electronic cash ledger of the taxpayers who have already paid the late fee on filing of GSTR-3B either for the month of August or September, 2017 or those who pay such fee before the necessary changes are carried out in the IT system will be credited with the amount of late fee so paid by them. The enabling notifications will be issued shortly.
