July 1 to be observed  as GST Day

As India transits to a new era with rollout of the Goods and Services Tax (GST), the government is leaving no stone unturned for a smooth switchover and has asked tax offices to convert into GST Seva-Kendras to provide all assistance to tax payers.

While the rollout day of July 1 will be known as ‘GST Day’, all the offices of the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) have been instructed to be open on Saturday as a trade facilitation measure.

This was to enable the availability of officers and staff for the benefit of trade and industry, an order issued by CBEC Special Secretary and Member S Ramesh said.

“Henceforth, all field offices from the Chief Commissioner’s office to the Range should serve as GST Seva- Kendras for effective trade facilitation,” it said.
