Srinagar, February 4

PK Bhat, Commissioner, State Taxes Department, has said vehicles are not unnecessarily made to halt at Lakhimpur, Udhampur and Lower Munda checkpoints. He said action is taken only against those attempting to evade detection. The Commissioner urged cooperation from stakeholders to streamline tax collection and integrate the unregistered sector into the GST.

He held an extensive interactive with over 40 representatives of trade bodies at the Excise and Taxation Complex, Srinagar, to deliberate over different matters for encouraging taxpayers for submission of GST besides taking up issues being faced by traders while paying tax.

The meeting was attended by Shakeel Maqbool, Additional Commissioner, State Taxes, Kashmir division, and representatives of the KTMF, the KCCI, the PHD Chamber and Commerce, Travel Agents Federation, hoteliers, Houseboat Owners Association and other stakeholders.

The participants raised several issues regarding interpretation and implementation of GST policy, technical glitches faced by taxpayers, adoption of cordial approach for tax collection, sensitisation of enforcement officers, halting of vehicles at Udhampur, extension in Amnesty Scheme, invoice amendment for B2B transactions and handholding of traders besides other issues.

While responding to multiple queries and demands of trade and industry associations, the commissioner outlined that some of the issues including awareness regarding GST interpretation is confronted by many across the country which can be only addressed by the GST Council.

He outlined that he would sincerely take up the issues with concerned quarters. Regarding cordial approach for tax collection, he maintained that any action is mandated by the law and the action is always taken only for non-compliance after serving notices.
