In section 44 of the Central Goods and Services Tax Act, 2017, which specifies that every registered person, other than an Input Service Distributor shall furnish an annual return for every financial year, in the Explanation, for the figures, letters and word “June 30, 2019”, the figures, letters and word “August 31, 2019” will be substituted.
