CAG: Govt. did not try out GST system before rollout; Leading to lower tax revenues

Without invoice matching and auto generation of refunds, assessments, etc. on the whole, the envisaged GST tax compliance system is non-functional.” says CAG report.

The growth of indirect taxes of Government of India has slowed down to 5.8% in 2017-18 over 2016-17 as compared to 21.33% during 2016-17, with GoI’s revenue from goods and services taking a 10% dip (via).
