To allay doubts and fears pertaining to Goods and Services Tax, BS Bhullar, the chief of Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) asked the district administration officials and Income Tax (I-T) department in Noida on Thursday evening to conduct workshops for businessmen, industrialists and traders.
The DGCA official gave the direction during a meeting on Thursday.
“Whatever problems traders and industrialists are facing due to the GST introduced by the Union government should be resolved at the earliest by the authorities concerned. If the officials have any doubt regarding the implementation of GST, they should consult me at the earliest. Also, more such workshops should be organised so that information regarding GST can be spread among all. Use of technology should also be taken up in this initiative,” said Bhullar.
The DGCA chief also said that the administration officials must be vigilant to thwart any wrongdoing under the guise of GST.
“Officials of both the district administration and I-T department must keep a vigil to ensure that nobody charges more than the standard price in the guise of GST. If any wrongdoing is noted, then the authorities concerned must take necessary action,” said Bhullar.
Assuring Bhullar of necessary action, district magistrate BN Singh said that all efforts are being taken by the administration to ensure that traders and industrialists are aware of the newly implemented tax reforms.
“The I-T department has also set up a centre at Ganga Shopping Complex in Sector 29 for industrialists and businessmen to avail of information regarding the GST. Workshops are being held and will be organised in the future as well to help the people,” said Singh.
Meanwhile, the Noida authority on Friday organised a workshop on GST at Indira Gandi Kala Kendra in Sector 6 to educate its staff and construction contractors.
“We have organised this workshop for employees and private contractors who remain confused over the impact of GST on construction material and services in which they are dealing with daily,” said Manmohan Mishra, financial controller of the Noida authority.
There are around 1,000 private construction contractors hired to execute various works, including road construction, repair of potholes and other infrastructure projects. “We want to understand how payments are to be made now, after the implementation of GST,” said a senior official.
