Assocham urges government to defer GST implementation

Citing several practical bottlenecks, leading industry chamber Assocham has urged the government to defer the implementation of GST from the beginning of the next month. In a formal note sent to the finance minister, the industry body has cited issues like deficiencies in the return formats which may pose a serious problem in the near run. “It has been stated that certain deficiencies in the return formats resulting in glitches in operation of GSTN were detected during a beta test done about a month back… the return module will be ready only by end-July, which will be before August, the month of filing returns.”

Apart from the GSTN issues, Assocham has also pointed the inability of many existing assesses to migrate to GST. “System glitches during migration process raise questions as to the ability of the system to withstand huge traffic in GST. During the current phase of GST migration for existing assesses, the server was constantly under maintenance. “
