PK Sinha, the Cabinet Secretary has issued certain instructions to all central ministries. Sinha has asked the ministers to keep an eye on price rise and the shortage of any commodity. He has guided them to report immediately to the concern authorities in case there are any software glitches and complaints from traders. By doing this, Sinha wants to keep ground level checks on the implementation of Goods & Services Tax(GST). Before this, the revenue department had taken the initiative of asking the ministries to set up their respective GST cells.
The letter which was issued by the cabinet secretary said, “To make the transition smooth and painless for the general public as well as for the traders, it is essential that all the government functionaries constantly obtain and analyze feedback from ground level and take corrective steps wherever necessary”.
To feed the analysis of the market collected by the ministers, the cabinet ministry has issued a form in which they are required to file weekly reports by Sunday. The form includes minute details and poses specific questions, like the position of prices of the products of the sector before and after GST. It also includes the possible reasons behind the change in prices before and after GST.
The letter added, “These cells shall constantly monitor and analyze the feedback from various channels such as nodal officers of attached organizations; call centers, consumer and business organizations, etc. The issues posed may be resolved in real time in consultation with the revenue department. You may also ensure that PSUs and field formations under your administrative jurisdiction also take similar steps to facilitate the smooth transition into GST platform”.
