Note – The transfer from one head to another head is instant and the balance is immediately reflected. This is a welcome move which saves lot of efforts of claiming refund where the balance was deposited under wrong head.
  1. Facility for filing GSTR 3B Return by Electronic Verification Code i.e. EVC (no need for affixing DSC)
The option to file GSTR-3B  by EVC instead of DSC is made available on GSTIN portal. Tax payers can submit GSTR-3B without DSC.

It appears that for other returns and documents also system will provide such facility in near future
Note – Facility for filing returns by EVC was only allowed for Individuals and OPC and not for Companies or LLPs or other Entities.
