Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar today went on to say that implementation of GST will be of assistance to the general consumer, keeping in mind the fact that it will lessen the tax burden on goods.
However, he further went on to say that in the early period of implementation, the new tax regime may cause “some confusion and destruction”.
Parrikar further complimented Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the energy with which he has been running the National Democratic Alliance government.
Asked about the merits of the Goods and Services Tax, which is scheduled to roll out from July 1, he said: “”Today we are going through multiple taxation, excise, customs, luxury tax, entry tax, purchase tax, sales tax, VAT everything. With GST it all gets converged into one. It’s very simple.”
