Dual control of GST not the best move
The minister also said that he does not approve of the dual control of GST, stating that this defeats its intended objectives. He also wants the government to sit through more intense calculations on the issue and not implement anything in a hurry, in order to meet a deadline. He assured industry chambers that he would take up these issues in the upcoming meetings of the GST council.
On the other hand, CBEC Chairman Najib Shah urged industries to not keep seeking exemptions under GST as they would mostly disappear once the new regime is put in place. He also clarified that too much is being read into the anti-profiteering clause set by the council. His opinion is that once the new tax structure is in place then it will subsume a host of indirect taxes, thus making the law user friendly.
