The GST and Central Excise Department has established GST Special Helpdesks in Tiruvallur and Vellore districts in Tamil Nadu to assist micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) in all matters relating to Goods and Services Tax (GST).
Support for MSMEs
This is part of the Government of India’s initiative to support and reach out to MSMEs in 80 districts. According to a press release, the officers at the helpdesks will also help the MSMEs in overcoming technical difficulties in paying tax, availing input tax credit and claiming GST refunds.
Priority for refund
For the next hundred days, the department undertakes to process the MSME refund claims on top priority and is also planning to conduct special outreach programmes in these two districts in cooperation with MSME trade bodies. The helpdesks will be at the Tiruvallur GST and Central Excise Range Office (Smisha.Rajan @firstname.lastname@example.org) , Poonamallee GST and Central Excise, division office (email@example.com), Vellore GST and Central Excise Division Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Ranipet GST and Central Excise Division Office (Rptemail@example.com).
