GSTR7 Return Not filed for earlier month - How to upload details of missed month

A state govt office has missed uploading the details for Oct-23 GSTR7.

However the Nov-23 GSTR7 has already been uploaded. 

Now while trying to upload the GSTR7 details for Oct-23 the following error is being shown "Return is filed or ready to be filed in future period."

Kindly guide if the only option is to show the details in Dec-23 GSTR7 return? Or is there any other way to upload the details paying the necessary late fine which the office is willing to do.
