Delhi Govt asks CII to join hands for GST Call Center

By TIOL News Service

NEW DELHI, MAR 17, 2017: SPEAKING at the CII event yesterday, the Delhi Dy CM, Mr Manish Sisodia, said that the upcoming GST will be a Tsunami of tax reforms and the small medium sector of Delhi might struggle to understand its fundamentals. He said, "It would be beneficial for the common man of Delhi if CII and the Delhi Government can open a 24-hour call center which can be a one stop for all answers on GST."

He also said that “It is the responsibility of Delhi’s Industry to tell the Government about what kind of vocational training courses should the Government design. Industry should do a detailed study on what skills would be required 5 years and 10 years down the line so that the Government can work towards providing the required manpower.” He further said that “The Government will provide location and space to the Industry so that they can partner with the Delhi Government to create and impart vocational courses.” He said “Delhi Government has announced 2 budgets in last 2 years without any tax increase however this looks difficult in the 3rd year.”

He suggested that for gaps to be bridged in industrial development of the state, engaging with industry is required to understand their needs and concerns. He stressed at the need of not only ‘Job Creation’ but ‘Job Creators.’
