In the context of traders, GST will bring down logistics costs massively and bring us at par with the developed nations. It will also simplify filling returns. With India?s biggest tax reforms of the 21st century, the country will be known for its leadership, and the year 2017 will be marked for bringing wholesome economic betterment. While there is an opportunity there is also a need to generate awareness and such seminars are the need of the hour. As a representative of the Government, I promise that businesses will be simplified including the MSMEs. With GST, India will rise up to paying taxes than evasion.?

Dhoot said, ?Announcement of GST in the country has been a revolutionary step.

Therefore, ASSOCHAM & Videocon have embarked upon the process of training and awareness of GST in a big way, which will be of paramount importance in the smooth roll-out of GST. As the contours of GST law are more or less known, the purpose of such programs is to sensitize the trade across India to make them aware of the salient features of GST.?
