Home English GST Council approves rollout of e-way bill from April.
Businesses will continue to file summary sales return GSTR-3B till June as the GST Council on Saturday extended the present system of return-filing by three months.
Briefing reporters after the GST Council meeting, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said electronic way or e-way bill for movement of goods between States will be implemented from April 1.
However, for intra-State movement the e-way bill would be rolled out in a phased manner beginning April 15 and will cover all the States by June 1.
The Council could not decide on a simplified GST return form and entrusted the ministerial panel under Sushil Modi to chalk out a single-page form which is simpler and evasion-proof.
Jaitley said the current system of GST return–filing has been extended by three months.
Besides, tax exemptions to exporters have also been extended by six months, till September.
