GST Workshop on Practical Requirements and Challenges

Event Detail

Why this Workshop

Just as we complete a year into the GST era, the challenge continues for both policymakers and stakeholders especially, around the technology front and the ease of compliance. A tax reform of this magnitude, in a country as large as India, operating under a federal structure, was expected to have teething trouble, but the response of the Government and the GST Council in understanding and addressing these concerns through interim and medium-term solutions is admirable and laudable.

As we look back at our experience, there is a need for more clarity on the appropriate classification of goods and services. There have also been certain divergent rulings on Advance Rulings, Transitional credit disallowances, special audits, classification disputes, which have fuelled confusion on the classification and application of tax rate.


The main objective of the Workshop is to bring to the fore various legislative measures being amended by GST Council aiming at further rationalising the indirect tax structure across India. We expect that this Workshop would provide a good platform for the Industry to put forth their pain points experienced during the past one year especially, related to implementation, current status and the States’ willingness to further integrate into the One-Nation-One-Law.

The Bangalore Chamber of Industry and Commerce (BCIC) under the aegis of Indirect and State Taxes Expert Committee is organizing a day long GST Workshop on Practical Requirements and Challenges in Bangalore.
