Dear all,

Your association SIMA is forwarding herewith an article published by The News Minute on dated 18/11/2019 heading “FM meets with CAs, traders and others in a bid to simplify GST filing process”.

As per the article, under the chairmanship of Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, a meeting was held in New Delhi on 16/11/2019 with the Chartered Accountants, Traders & officials.

FM Nirmala Sitharaman has also suggested that similar exercises take place across the country next month to understand the concerns of GST filers.

In a recent interaction with the media, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had hinted that GST was still evolving and the government is open to making changes needed to further simplify the system. That seems to now be underway with the government’s relevant departments holding direct interactions with the users in live demonstrations on the issues being faced by those filing the GST returns, PTI reports.

During the meeting, the stakeholders were asked to provide their suggestions to improve the system as well. Those attending included the Rajasthan Tax Consultants' Association, ICAI, CAIT and Laghu Udyog Bharti. The government side was represented by CBIC Chairman, GSTN CEO, Member (Tax Policy), CBIC, AS (Revenue), Joint Secretary (Revenue), JS (TRU-1) and EVP- GSTN, apart from the FM.

Similar meetings are now planned across the country and the respective Commissioners heading the circles will hold these meetings and collect feedback. The interactions will involve officials from GSTN and CBIC as well and will be an ongoing activity until the GST returns filing process is made customer-friendly and smooth.
