Remove disparities in GST: CAIT tells GST Council
Ahead of the forthcoming meeting of GST Council on 6th October, the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has stressed the immediate need of removal of anomalies, disparities and contradictions of Goods and Services Tax (GST). The CAIT has also called for smooth functioning of GSTN portal to provide ease of complying GST provisions for the traders.

“The GST has been deeply fractured owing to lethargic attitude of GSTN portal and absence of any nodal authority to monitor execution of GST in the country,” CAIT said in a statement.

CAIT national president BC Bhartia and secretary general Praveen Khandelwal hoped that the GST Council will seriously deliberate on the issues raised by the traders considering the situation of chaos and confusion prevailing among the trading community.

The CAIT has demanded that if seller is not depositing tax, the onus should not be put on the buyer and since the government has issued GST no. after proper verification, the recovery of tax should be the duty of the government and not the traders.

The reverse charge mechanism is quite irrational and since it has no impact on revenue, the same should be scrapped, the statement suggested.

Filing of GST return should be made applicable on turnover of more than Rs 100 crore and those with turnover below this amount should be allowed to file return quarterly but tax may be deposited on monthly basis. E-way Bill should be levied only on inter-state sale having a value of more than Rs 1 lakh. The HSN code should be applicable on manufacturers and traders should be absolved from HSN code filing, CAIT said.

“No proper functioning of GSTN portal and absence of any nodal authority for seeking authoritative response for the queries have added miseries to the life of traders in barely 100 days of GST implementation in the country,” CAIT said.

Both Bhartia and Khandelwal hoped that the GST Council will also focus on redressal of tax and procedural issues raised by CAIT. Irrationality of 28 per cent tax slab under GST should be considered and those items that do not fall under luxurious and demerit category but have been placed in 28 per cent tax slab should be brought to lower tax segment, they said.
