PANAJI: The Goods and Service Tax (GST) has revolutionised tax collecting and is guiding India toward progress and development, Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Tuesday, September 20.
"The GST has changed how the nation collects taxes and conducts business. Prime Minister Narendra Modi's groundbreaking tax reform has stabilised India and is guiding it toward growth and development " the chief minster Sawant said.
The CM was speaking after starting a two-day workshop for the Goa Commercial Taxes Department officers to strengthen their capacities. The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI), New Delhi, organised it.
