No, once the return is filed it can not be revised.
2. What if additional liability arises ?
Liability identified during the filing of annual return can be deposited with Government using DRC-03 Form (i.e., Liability not earlier paid through GSTR-3B)
3. A GSTR-3B was filed with wrong (excess) outward supplies and tax paid on the same, but the actual/correct supplies were declared in GSTR-1 for the same period, then in that case is there any way to get a refund of excess amount paid?
If taxes are erroneously paid in excess in GSTR-3B, the same can be claimed as a refund (as per Section 54 of CGST Act) or be adjusted against tax payments of subsequent periods. But, the same cannot be claimed though GSTR-9. The refund needs to be claimed by making an application for the same on GST portal.
