GST Awareness: Jaitley seeks support from lawmakers

The minister asks the lawmakers to play a crucial role in creating mass awareness about the new tax law.

Ahead of GST roll-out from July 1 –  the most important tax reform since independence, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has solicited support from members of Parliament and state legislatures to create mass awareness about the upcoming indirect tax regime.

In a letter to the presidents of various political parties, the minister expressed gratitude for their contribution in making the GST a reality, as per a PTI report.

"If trade and industry face any difficulty during the implementation phase, the representatives of the people should be better equipped to handle the same," Jaitley said.

He added: "The GST will also help in removing the cascading effect of taxation and provide relief to the common man in the form of reduced prices of essential consumer goods."
