Aug 07, 2019 | by Avantis RegTech Legal Research Team


The State Government of Maharashtra on August 05, 2019, has extended the time for payment of requisite amount and submission of applications for Settlement of Arrears under First Phase.

Maharashtra Settlement of Arrears of Tax, Interest, Penalty or Late Fee Act, 2019 provides for the time limit under the First Phase and the Second Phase for submission of applications and payment of the requisite amount for settlement of arrears under the various Acts administered by the Maharashtra Goods and Services Tax Department. The First Phase started on April 01, 2019 and ended on July 31, 2019 and the Second Phase started on August 01, 2019 and will end on August 31, 2019.

Accordingly, to avail the benefits under the First Phase the taxpayers were required to make the payment of the requisite amount and submit the application for settlement of arrears, under the various Acts administered, on or before July 31, 2019. But, some taxpayers faced technical glitches while uploading their applications or while making payments under Settlement Act on July 31, 2019.

Therefore, State Government of Maharashtra extends the last date under FIRST PHASE for taxpayers who have faced technical glitches. The table of extended date is as below:
