"Simplification of the return filing process was a major topic of discussion at the meeting," Jaitley said while speaking at a press conference following the GST Council meeting in Delhi.
The minister said that simplification of the return filing process was a major topic of discussion, as the Council felt that the Ministers' group, the IT committee and Nandan Nilekani should discuss simplification process and formalise the alternative system following a video conference meeting soon.
"The discussion was culminating in a direction that, initially there will be a 3B return and there will be a supplier's invoice which could be adequate. This will be a very simple process," the finance minister added.
Jaitley also said that simplification of the return filing process will be discussed in the 26th meeting, which will be held over video-conferencing. (ANI)
