    The single monthly return will take at least six months to get fully operational and till then the existing system of GSTR-3B and GSTR-1 will continue, Hasmukh Adhia, Finance Secretary said.

    The new single monthly return for B and C will have details regarding the total turnover, for B to B it will have details of all the sales invoices along with 4-digit HSN code.

    During the transition phase, the return design will have a separate column in which the dealer will be able to claim provisional credit at his own calculation for a period of more than six months, irrespective of whether or not the seller has uploaded the invoices, Hasmukh Adhia added.
