Speaking at the GST seminar Dr. Dinesh Sharma, Deputy CM (Uttar Pradesh) applauded Prime Minister NarendraModi’s vision and initiatives such as Jan DhanYojan, Demonetizationa and GST and termed them very beneficial for business fraternity. Dr. Dinesh Sharma said, “Whenever history of financial revolutions in India is mentioned, Business fraternity will find a golden place in it for accepting these changes with open heart. Few years back when global recession hit the world, India remained unaffected because of our thriving business fraternity”.
Calling GST a historic financial revolution he said, “Previously existing more than 17 types of taxes were hampering our trade and growth rate. GST is the result of 10-15 years of a marathon journey. Business fraternity wants to pay taxes in an honourable way and they don’t want unnecessary exploitation. This fraternity constitutes the most for nation building. When business persons are freed from technical complexities of taxation I am sure their contribution toward nation building will become more rapid and intense”
Addressing to concerns being raised by different traders Dr. Dinesh Sharma said, “UP Government will put forward all issues and concerns being raised by business fraternity in front of GST council and we will make sure that amendments as necessary are brought in action with time. I acknowledge that some objections regarding GST are justified and government will do the needful in this regard”.
Eminent GST experts also addressed the seminar and replied to queries of business fraternity.
