The Haryana Government has decided to constitute district-level committees to make smooth the process of adoption of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and hasten the transition from cash to digital payments in the state.
Disclosing this here today, Capt Abhimanyu, Excise and Taxation Minister, said directions had been issued to the Excise and Taxation Department to constitute four to five-member committees in each district for the purpose.

These committees will comprise DETC and senior ETO from the department and two/three representatives from among such institutions as the Confederation of All Indian Traders (CAIT), Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI), industries associations and chartered accountants of trade and industry.
Capt Abhimanyu said the committee would look after various aspects of GST implementation in a particular district.

These include arranging workshops and seminars on the GST Act and GST network after identifying needy dealers with the help of CAIT members.

Besides holding regular meetings, the committee will decide areas, including geographical, legal and technical, where help is needed for smooth implementation of GST. It would identify commodities or trade-wise sectors where help could be imparted.

The committee will also decide the type of help to be imparted to needy persons or groups at seminars, workshops, lectures and practical presentations where officers of of the state department will impart such help, with the help of CAIT members. The JETCs (Range) has been directed to interact with these organisations in each district falling in their respective range to obtain the names of representatives from the mentioned institutions and also send the names of officers within a week so that these committees may be formally constituted at each district level, Capt Abhimanyu added.
