'War room' set up to deal with GST crises

 Equipped with multiple phone lines, computer systems and manned by tech-savvy youngsters, a “mini war room” has been set up in the Ministry of Finance to deal with the crises related to the implementation of GST.

Central Board of Excise and Customs chief Vanaja N Sarna said on Tuesday that the unit will act as a quick resource centre for central and state government officials to address their queries on the historic tax reform scheduled to be implemented from July 1.

“The finance ministry has set up a GST feedback and action room specifically for government officials to approach it with any urgent queries related to problems of GST in any area,” Vanaja said.

The action room, which will function from 8 am-10 pm, will provide prompt response to queries raised by states and central government officials.

A team of tech-savvy young officers will be manning the “war room” to assist officials in resolving their GST-related queries, sources said. The room, equipped with computers and phone lines, will act as a single-window for anything and everything related to GST, they said.
