GST Department Issues Notice For Interest Payment On Late Fees Paid in GSTR-3B

A GST stakeholder Suresh Patel has tweeted that My client received interest due notice for 2017-18 for nil gstr3b. But paid late fee. Interest is calculated on late fee.

Is interest is applicable on late fee too? Under Gst act?

He tagged official twitter handle of GSTN in his tweet.

Replying to Suresh Patel’s tweet, official twitter handle of GSTN has tweeted that “Dear @SURESH_PATEL282, your issue is being forwarded to @cbic_india.”

The question arise here that how GST Department has calculated interest on late fees?
