Justice Hc: Input tax credit is a problem in GST implementation | Ranchi News

Ranchi: Implementation of Goods and Services Tax (GST) is facing bottlenecks, especially in Jharkhand, and there is need to sensitize stakeholders for better compliance, experts said on Saturday tax authorities and High Court judges.
Expressing his views during a technical session at the State Level Seminar on GST attended by Jharkhand High Court Judges including Chief Justice Dr. Ravi Ranjan and officials of the Union Government, among others, Justice Anubha Rawat Choudhary said some of the GST portals are not yet fully operational. She also highlighted the need for the creation of GST tribunals.
“There might be compliance errors due to connectivity issues, especially between June 10 and June 12 in Ranchi when the internet was cut,” she said.
Previously, Chief Justice Ranjan said the GST was the result of the collaborative efforts of the Center and the states. He called it an example of cooperative federalism, which aims to increase government resources. Judge Ranjan also mentioned that the Supreme Court clarified that the recommendations of the GST Council are not binding on the legislator.
Justice Aparesh Kumar Singh said among the issues are barriers to input tax (ITC) refunds. He also said that supporting notices and orders should not be issued hastily by GST authorities.
Judge Kumar added: “You cannot expect a small business owner to be fully conversant with the online operation of GST, which is so structured with so many forms. “Due to lack of knowledge, default occurs even among bona fide taxpayers,” he added.
Justice SN Prasad said that one of the main purposes of the GST is to keep one nation one tax.
