It will be great to understand the effects of this tax regime from such an august gathering.”

CNBC-TV18, Managing Editor, Shereen Bhan said, “The Channel has been the forefront of educating viewers about the GST. We launched the GST Helpline ahead of the July 1 rollout to help India Inc make the transition. Over the past year, through our GST Town halls and Ground reports, we have engaged with key stakeholders with an aim to assess and evaluate the implementation of this much-awaited reform. We have also put the spotlight on the changes needed to make the execution and administration more effective. As we start the journey into year two, we intend to continue our efforts to inform, engage and empower.”

PwC, Partner and Leader Indirect Tax, Pratik Jain said, “Completion of one year of GST is a good time to reflect what has worked for India Inc and what not.  More importantly, it's time to understand how businesses are changing on the ground and what Industry now expects the Government to do so that we are able to realize the real benefits that GST can potentially offer.  Having worked with hundreds of leading corporates in GST transition and now technology led compliance management, we at PwC are excited to be part of this momentous reform. Through this event, we look forward to continue playing a constructive role in consultations between the industry and policymaker.”
