In a cabinet meeting held on Wednesday, Gujarat government decided to make appropriate changes in the state GST Act and give relief to those paying the Goods and Services Tax. “The cabinet decided to make changes to the state GST Act and increase the time duration for filing returns. Details will be announced after a notification in this regard is made,” said Ashwini Kumar, secretary to chief minister while addressing media persons at Gandhi nagar.
The official said that in the original GST Act, there was no provision to increase or decrease the time duration for filing of returns or other matters. “So the Centre passed an ordinance on March 31 making necessary changes. In the same context, the state government will also make appropriate changes as discussed in the cabinet meeting today and a detailed notification will be brought out to help those paying GST,” he added.
