    sir,
    request following clarifications:-
    01. what is the relevance of threshold limit for registering under gst of Rs. 20Lacs since the person not required to register is treated as an unregistered dealer and incidence of tax from 5 to 28% is on receiver of the goods or services

    02. what is need for payment of gst liability along with the return, when it is not necessary that in construction industry the ra bill will get certified and remitted in same month and depends on govt approvals of budget etc for work contract bills.

    03. getting gst registered suppliers and subcontractors for construction industry working at remote areas is not practicable and also the hapazard rcm on receiver of goods and services for gst payment from 5 to 28% will be huge burden on cash flows since sources of funds are limited and do not follow monthly pattern but milestones
    it is desirable to remove rcm

    04. why the dealers should trust on gst portal for input and rcm payment input credits and matching and mis matching of inputs of suppliers and subcontractors and date deadlines of the gst system may result in destroying the entire infrastructure, agro based rural economy the root of financial system of bharat. this may not be the vision of atal bihari vajpayee for gst execution.

    05. will the govt. make part payments of ra bills for gst remittances or the govt takes the responsibility of remittance of gst on behalf of contractors in construction of roads, irrigation, power, mining projects which attract 12% gst. the onus of remittance of tds may be on the receiver of work contract services instead of provider of service, keeping in view huge volume of resources/funds.
