Welcoming GST, 22 States Abolish Border Checkposts

GST rollout: 22 states including Delhi, Maharashtra abolish check posts

GST is divided into two components- Central and State.

Eight states, including Assam, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, and some north-eastern states, are in the process of abolishing check posts.

Among the states that have removed the checkposts are Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Gujarat, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and West Bengal. With the roll-out of the GST, 22 States in India have abolished their check posts.

The removal of the check posts will save a considerable amount of time and hassle for trucks traveling interstate as they will no longer need to get their consignments and papers checked crossing from one state to another.

The GST was rolled out on 1 July 2017.

Standalone, some utility bills will be more expensive in the GST regime as broadband, mobile, piped gas, LPG cylinders etc. attract more tax under the new structure. "The finance department also brought out a list of 101 products that cost less after the GST came into effect", he said.

On Tuesday, the Finance Ministry again refuted concernabout a "disability tax" or that assistive devices and rehabilitation aids for physically challenged persons have become more expensive under GST. He has urged cabinet secretaries at states to take up the responsibility of addressing GST-related issues of their respective stakeholders, trade and industry.

He said government officials should ensure benefits of GST to pass on to consumers which would in turn also keep inflation under control.

The government is closely monitoring price and supply of goods, particularly essential and daily-use commodities, to ensure there are no disruptions post GST rollout, Revenue Secretary Hasmukh Adhia said today.

He also asked them to make their GST Cell and Nodal Officers fully-equipped to deal with any situation that may arise.
