My turn over for FY2017-18 is less than 2 crore and the government made it optional for us to file GSTR9. So please suggest me either I should file it or not? if I don't file the same, will there be any consequences?

Before making the Decision not to File GSTR-9, just make sure that data uploaded in GSTR-1 & GSTR-3B is accurate and the same are matching with your Financial statements.
GSTR-9 is a correction tool because if any wrong data is upload in GSTR1 & GSTR 3b than u can use the same for correction of ur data.

Agree with neerav yogesh Shah, better cross check the details of taxable supplies and taxes paid with books of accounts if there is no difference then no need to file, if there is any contrary then file 9 correct mistakes.
Optional means what ever data you filed through GSTR 1 And GSTR 3B is considered as final data.
