Govt closely monitoring price, supply situation post GST implementation

All other levies on entry of goods have been subsumed in the GST, thereby resulting in abolition of entry barriers in 22 states.

According to a finance ministry statement, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Assam and some north-east states are also in the process of abolishing check posts.

States, including Andhra Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh, Bihar, Gujarat, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Sikkim, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Chhattisgarh, Delhi, Goa, Haryana, Jharkhand, Odisha, Puducherry, Rajasthan, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand have already removed boundary check posts, easing the flow of goods and services.

Speaking on the initial feedback received post-GST rollout, Adhia revealed that the new taxation system has been well received.

A revision in the rate of a pre-packaged commodity after the implementation of GST has to be intimated through advertisement in at least two newspapers and thereafter additional stickers over and above the MRP can be used.


Nepal government officials said their economy was bound to be affected by India's new tax system as two-thirds of Nepal's worldwide trade takes place with India alone.

Last month, Jaitley had written to Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to implement GST as failing to do so would lead to "adverse impact" of price rise and put local industry at a disadvantage. He asked them to coordinate with state government officials to ensure smooth implementation of the tax measure.

Adhia informed the media that the CMC formed by the Cabinet Secretary includes the Secretaries of 15 departments of the government which have been instructed to attend to the issues faced by their individual client groups on account of the Goods and Services Tax that came into effect pan-India from July 1. This committee will also be looking at the problems faced by the different stakeholders under the GST.

It was decided that a weekly Review Meeting will be held to keep a close watch on post GST situation.
