Cuttack: The All India Association of Tax Lawyers and Berhampur Tax Bar Association filed a public interest litigation (PIL) in the Orissa High Court today seeking changes in the recently introduced Goods and Services Tax (GST).
The petition sought simplification of the GST procedure and introduction of paper filing system. It mentioned GST is a time-consuming process and claimed that small traders are facing a lot of problem because of it.
The petition said the move is an attempt by the Centre to encroach the rights of states and demanded an immediate rollback of GST.
It has made party around eight departments of both Centre and State government in the case.
