  5. rajivmangrulkar says:

    Following issues under gstin need review/clarity:-

    01. INVOICES UNDER PRE-GST ERA UNDER CENTRAL EXCISE ACT AND VAT ACT VIZ: EXCISE INVOICE AND TAX INVOICE WERE HAVING AUTHROISATION SYSTEM UNDER RULE OF THE LAW. IN GST ERA INVOICES RAISING IN THE PORTAL BY ANY DEALER IS FAILING THE SANCTITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY AND COULD LEAD TO MANIPULATIONS AND FRAUDS/INTENTIONAL ERRORS. ALSO DEALER RAISING INVOICES/DEBIT/CREDIT NOTES FOR RETURN OF PRODUCTS REQUIRING SALE UNDER OTHER ACTS LIKE MINING AND INFLAMMABLE /PETROLEUM PRODUCTS/HAZARDOUS ITEMS ACTS NEED REVIEW SINCE DEALER DOES NOT HAVE LICENCE AND BUSINESS MOA/AOA DOES NOT PERMIT HIM UNDER COMPANIES ACT TO RAISING INVOICES FOR SUCH PRODUCTS. ALSO

    02. INVOICES RAISING BY THE DEALER UNDER GST FOR UN REGISTERED DEALER PURCHASES ABOVE RS.5000 PER DAY UNDER RCM IS DISCOURAGING TO THE RURAL/REMOTE INFRASTRUCTURE/CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY WHERE LABOUR CONTRACT WORKS ARE MAJOR SOURCE OF LIVELY HOOD TO VILLAGERS WHO ARE NOT TECHNO SAVVY TO UPLOAD INVOICES AGAINST INWARD /OUTWARD SUPPLIES.

    03. PROCESS OF CLAIMING INPUT CREDIT IS CUMBERSOME AND TOO MUCH OF DOCUMENTATION REQUIRED ALONG WITH LIASONING WITH THE SUPPLIERS TO ENSURE THEY UPLOAD AND CONFIRM THE INPUT CREDIT TO ENSURE MIS MATCHES OF INPUT DOES NOT ARISE. THE TIME LIMITS AND DISPUTES CAN ARISE BETWEEN THE PARTIES WHICH CAN AFFECT THE BUSINESS/ECONOMY OF DEMAND AND SUPPLY.

    04. LINKAGES OF ITEMS RATES AND HSN CODES WITH PRE GST ITEM CODES AND DESCRIPTIONS UNDER VAT/EXCISE LAWS NEED TO BE PUBLISHED AND PROVIDED TO THE PUBLIC. ALSO IT IS NOT CLEAR WHETHER GOVT DEPT’ ARE GST READY TO CATER TO GOVT PROJECTS AND GOVT SUPPLIES WHERE PUBLIC/GOVT AND PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP IS INVOLVED. IT LEADS TO CONTENTIOUS ISSUES. ALSO GOVT PAYMENTS FOR MONTH WISE BILLS IS ERATIC HENCE WHOLE INPUT CREDITS AND PAYMENTS OF GST DUES ON DUE DATES WILL ABNORMALLY DELAY DUE TO CASH FLOW PROBLEMS FOR THE PRIVATE DEALER DEALING WITH GOVT CONTRACTS/SUPPLIES.

    05. HSD AND LABOUR WERE OUTSIDE SCOPE OF VAT AND EXCISE/SERVICE TAX/WCT UNDER THE PRE-GST ERA FOR GOVT PROJECTS UNDER ROAD AND IRRIGATION PUBLIC WORKS. THE OUTPUT TAX @18% IS PROHIBITIVE DUE TO LONG GESTATION PERIODS OF WORKING CAPITAL CYCLE OF THESE INFRASTRUCTURE/CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY.

    THERE IS SERIOUS NEED TO ADDRESS THE LOOPHOLES IN THE SYSTEM AT THE EARLIEST BEFORE RETURNS FILINGS UNDER GST STARTS TO AVOID CONFUSION AND ENCOURAGE BUSINESS GROWTH AND ECONOMY FOR GOOD START. MERA BHARAT MAHAN- BHARAT MATA KI JAI.
