This will be the sixth meeting of the Group of Ministers (GoM) after being set up in September 2017.
In 2015, Infosys won a Rs 13.8 billion (Rs 1,380 crore) deal for developing and running GSTN's back end office.
GSTN, the information technology backbone and portal for real-time taxpayer registration, migration, and tax return filing under GST, had run into a snag when the first deadline for filing GSTR-3B returns approached, forcing the government to extend the last date.
Besides, the deadline for filing the final sales returns GSTR-1 was extended from December 31, 2017, to January 10, 2018, after some taxpayers complained of troubles in uploading returns.
The GoM is also likely to deliberate on e-way bill implementation from February 1 and readiness of the platform, the sources added.
