07:40 PM Apr 27, 2021 | IANS

The government has provided relief to GST taxpayers from a physical visit to tax office for verification of digital signature required on return forms.

The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs has allowed taxpayers to file return forms GSTR-1 and GSTR 3B through an electronic verification code (EVC) that would be a kind of one time password (OTP). This would eliminate the need to verify the returns forms filed by taxpayers through digital signature by visitation to GST offices.
