GST rolls out on July 1st and GSTN system which powers the entire transition is..well, not yet tested fully.
Has Modi govt taken 'don't fix it till it is broken' mantra to new level?
From the interview :
Qn: How confident are you of the GSTN system? Have you been able to conclude testing the software?
GSTN chief Navin Kumar:
It should be a stable system. Problems that surfaced during the first phase of the testing have been resolved. We did the testing on the basis of the rules that came in December. After that, some changes were made to the rules. Those changes we have absorbed now, so there is no time to do beta testing for that. Other than that, we have done all other tests. So, we are fairly confident of the system (via).
The choice of words like "should be" scares me. Brace yourself for one more chaos post demonetization.
