CAIT will train 5000 traders as master trainers for GST
To take the provisions of proposed GST down the line among trading community, the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has decided to prepare 5000 trade leaders from all over the country as Master Trainers who will be responsible to empower and educate the trading community about GST.

This decision was taken at a two days national conference of trade leaders being held at Nagpur under the umbrella of CAIT.

In a unanimous resolution CAIT said that, "Though trading community is making all efforts to remain alive with the ongoing developments on GST but certainly the onus lies on the Government to empower the traders about proposed GST. It is regretted that though few months have left but so far neither the Central Government or State Governments have made any concrete efforts to take stakeholders into confidence about GST though being the last mile connect with the consumer, the traders are the real carriers of GST."

CAIT National President B.C. Bhartia said that the proposed GST is an e-compliance taxation system altogether different from current tax regime and nearly 70% of the traders in the Country have yet to adopt computers in their existing business system. How such traders will comply with GST is a big concern.

The Government must carve out a policy to support traders in adopting digital technology and as such efforts must be made to ensure availability of Computers & its hardware at subsidised rates and Banks should be asked to finance computerisation at a lower rate of interest, Bhartia added.

However, the CAIT in association with Tally Solutions Pvt. Limited (TSPL), one of the premier Indian software product company, has initiated a national drive to help traders across the country to understand the impact of GST on their business and to help them be aware of the procedural compliance under the new taxation system and how they can embrace technology for easy compliance of GST by upgrading their existing business format.
