HYDERABAD: Noting that a number of anomalies are likely to crop up in the implementation of the GST, officials believe that it is a matter of time till the dust settles.Speaking at a day-long workshop on ‘GST: Way Forward’ held here on Thursday to clarify doubts relating to GST, K Haritha, deputy commissioner (Punjagutta), commercial taxes, said, “No reform can be 100 per cent perfect.

There are still loopholes that are being exploited by a few traders. We are not concerned about them. Their businesses will stagnate. As officers, our task from now on will be to catch the big fish who evade taxes.” She said that shortcuts like ante-dating of bills were unacceptable, adding that the anti-profiteering law would be invoked against such people. 


Asking small traders to quickly adapt to  digitisationin order to reap the benefits, state chief secretary SP Singh said, “It may be difficult in the beginning but, as months pass by, the process will be much easier.” Traders, retailers and chartered accountants participated in the workshop and cleared their doubts. The state will soon hold sectoral workshops to address issues in some sectors. Principal secretary Somesh Kumar said, “The eight lines from 8 am to 8 pm had calls on issues mostly related to linking of software with Aadhaar and PAN.”
