The Honourable Supreme Court has set aside the recent order by the Delhi High Court permitting Bharti Airtel to rectify its GST returns filed for the Sep-17 quarter. This pertains to Bharti Airtel claiming refund of Rs.923 crore because that they had paid excess tax on inputs due to absence of purchase-related tax return forms.

Supreme Court noted that such unilateral changes to returns could likely have a cascad8ing effect on recipients and suppliers connected to the transaction at multiple levels. The Delhi High Court had earlier permitted Bharti to make corrections to the GSTR-3B forms filed by Bharti Airtel for the Sep-17 quarter.
