VAT Commissioner Shri Prashant Goyal while appreciating the role of trading community in the development of Delhi stressed the need to identify more sources of VAT revenue as Delhi has the potential of raising revenue. He also said that the department is committed to making a mechanism to check the illegal entry of unrecorded goods into Delhi which is distorting the competition and Delhi trade. He sought cooperation of traders and said that the joint efforts of the traders and the department will strengthen Delhi trade further.
CAIT National Organising Secretary Shri Satish Garg, who led the discussion in the meeting, stated that since both the department and the traders are the "tax collectors" for the Government, such understanding between the Department and the Traders will yield better results in the time to come. The solutions of the problems of the traders and augmentation of revenue and check on illegal inflow of goods in Delhi are the core issues which need to be solved with continuing better understanding between Department and Traders. However he drew the attention of the VAT Department about problems of the traders on account of refund and non-availability of C- Forms, which is causing harassment.
Mr. Garg and Delhi State CAIT General Secretary Shri Vijay Pal informed that very soon the CAIT will launch a special drive among Trade Associations of Delhi in association with VAT Department to have a mechanism of "one stop solution" for problems of the traders as also to find out possible ways and means to augment the revenue. Soon a delegation of the CAIT will meet VAT Commissioner with its proposal and sought cooperation of the Department.
