A notification in this regard is being issued shortly. This is to facilitate about 30.81 lakh taxpayers for filing GSTR-2 for the month of July 2017.

The last date for filing of final sales returns for July in GSTR-1 form was October 10. Also, the last date for uploading of purchase returns in GSTR-2 was October 31. For GSTR 2, it is now revised to November 30.
