What is GST Seva Kendra?

The one-stop GST facilitation center, GST Seva Kendra was launched by the CBEC in February 2017, to cater to the taxpayers and businesses then preparing for the GST registration. The breakthrough initiative was taken up to help them become well-versed in GST.

Why is GST Seva Kendra needed?

GST Seva Kendra was initiated with an aim to prepare India for the migration from the old tax regime to the new reformed GST (Goods & Services Tax) regime. Now that almost the entire nation is GST-registered, the facilitation center or the GST Help Desk is all ears to their GST-related queries such as GST registration, GST migration and GST return filing.

What are the services offered at a GST Seva Kendra?

Established by the CBEC, a GST Seva Kendra or GST Help Desk is committed to guiding every GST-registered taxpayer with related policies and GST return filing. The officers serving across all the locations make sure that any GST-registered taxpayer who comes in with a query or issue does not leave unanswered.

Where to find a GST Seva Kendra?

The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) has opened over 8000 GST Seva Kendra offices in all districts across India. The offices are set up based on range and division and therefore a taxpayer can connect with the nearest GST Seva Kendra keeping in mind their area of authority. In fact, the number of these offices in the major cities of India is very reassuring.

For instance, Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, and Bangalore have 202, 194, 178 and 50 GST Help Desk offices, respectively. Other major cities such as Hyderabad, Chennai, Pune, and Ahmedabad have 70, 55, 40 and 59 offices, respectively.
