Common service centre (CSC), an e-governance delivery centre of Ministry of IT & Electronics will organise a workshop on GST to inform and educate select village level entrepreneur (VLEs) and state-level employees of CSC SPV on the developments in GST, said Ministry of IT & Electronics.
Goods and Services Tax (GST) is an upcoming system of taxation which will merge many individually applied taxes into a single tax. The GST is likely to be rolled-out from July 1, 2017.
Although the GST system will have a G2B portal for taxpayers to access the GST systems, GST Suvidha Provider or GSP is one of the methods of interacting with the GST system. The taxpayer via GST Suvidha Provider, which will provide all user interfaces and convenience via desktop, mobile and other interfaces, will be able to interact with the GST system.
CSC SPV has taken the initiative of becoming a GST Suvidha Provider. So now all Common Services Centres across the country would act as GST Suvidha Provider and will help merchants in filing taxes under the new regime and also provide necessary training and support services to people, said government.
