Penalizing has to be there to eliminate any laziness or carelessness. But here it is done with the assumption that the GST system is PERFECT and its the Business Personals who are IMPERFECT.
Earlier in VAT systems, the calculations are shown before we Accept in Govt. wesbite. Unfortunately in the July 17 implementation of GSTR3B, it isn't available in Aug17 and updated later. In my case, due to keyboard malfunctioning, "6" did not type in and submitted it. Unfortunately, I realized only when in Payment Screen where we set the taxes for state & central that there is a difference in my state tax. No one knows how to resolve this and no one to help me out as Submit in GST is irreversible.
For Aug 17 GSTR3B, I failed to submit as July 17 GSTR3B was not filed. On 23rd Aug, GST Website allowed to resubmit GSTR3B for July 17. I was happy and corrected it immediately. No penalities. For Aug 17 GSTR3B. I had to pay 3x200 = Rs600 for late filing. How far is it correct?
I support to waive the penalties and train Business Personals to get used to GST system while the system undergoes continuous changes. As an when the system is fixed with no further reverses or updates, Govt can enforce with Penalties.
