The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) introduced QRMP scheme under GST for the taxpayers having aggregate turnover up to Rs. 5 crores in the current and previous FY w.e.f. January 1, 2021. Presently, GSTR-3B return is furnished monthly, but under QRMP scheme, to bring ease for small taxpayers, they will be filing Form GSTR-3B return quarterly and pay tax every month either by self-assessment of monthly liability or 35% of net cash liability of previous filed Form GSTR-3B of the quarter, starting from January-March 2021.

For example, a registered taxpayer having annual aggregate turnover up to Rs. 5 crores in preceding FY and has filed return in Form GSTR-3B for the period June 2021 by the last day of the first month of next quarter, i.e. by July 31, 2021.
