About GST CELL
One day Workshop On
GOODS AND SERVICES TAX (ONE NATION ONE TAX)
(3rd May 2017)
The Goods and Services Tax cell has been established at ni-msme. The center conducts various Awareness and Training programs, Seminars relating to GST.
The introduction of Goods and Services Tax (GST) would be a very significant step in the field of indirect tax reforms in India. By amalgamating a large number of Central and State taxes into a single tax, it would mitigate cascading or double taxation in a major way and pave the way for a common national market.
From the consumer point of view, the biggest advantage would be in terms of a reduction in the overall tax burden on goods, which is currently estimated to be around 25%-30%.
Introduction of GST would also make Indian products competitive in the domestic and international markets. Studies show that this would have a boosting impact on economic growth. Last but not the least, this tax, because of its transparent and self-policing character, would be easier to administer.
