Way forward for smooth implementation of GST

GST has been launched w.e.f 1.7.2017. In order to ensure smooth working of GST across India the following is necessary:

  • Smooth working of the I T Network at GSTN.
  • Meeting implementation challenges and teething troubles.
  • Effective coordination between Centre & State tax administrations.
  • Reorganization of field formations.
  • Continuous Training of Officials and Trade & Industry.
  • Augmentation of human resources.
  • Spreading Accounting Literacy.
  • Developing IT skills
  • Harmonization of processes & procedures between CGST / IGST & SGST Law
  • No tinkering of Rates at the State level.

The Government has already extended the dates of return filing for July 2017.

A close watch should be kept on the readiness of IT networks and if need be some more relaxation be given to tax payers.
