Improving GST collection offers hope for Karnataka
BENGALURU: In an effort to increase compliance in payment of goods and services tax, the Centre has initiated corrective measures to improve the GST Network (GSTN) web portal.
Technical glitches on GSTN, through which tax is paid and and returns filed, were cited for poor compliance. Ever since it was rolled out over two years ago, despite initiatives such as setting up a group of ministers, the problems have persisted.
The Union revenue department has organised brainstorming sessions with GSTN’s lead service provider Infosys. “It was a long-pending demand that the Centre should intervene directly and it has finally happened, though a little late,” said BT Manohar, member, GST advisory council, Karnataka government. “It has raised hopes of resources mobilisation for Karnataka.”
Once the glitches are fixed, compliance in Karnataka could be higher than in Maharashtra, which tops GST collection in the country.
“We took stock of all issues related to performance of the portal,” said Anil Kumar Jha, additional revenue secretary, finance ministry, central government.
