Traders hold puja of GST portal this Diwali
At CAIT headquarters at New Delhi, vedic scholars amid chanting of mantras performed Diwali pooja by switching on the GST portal with traders applying tilak to the portal and offering floral garlands.

In place of account books, the computers and other means of business communication including laptop, mobile, telephone, WhatsApp on cellphone were also worshiped.

For the first time in the country besides holding traditional Diwali puja at physical stores, the traders in different states also performed puja of GST portal, computer, and mobile. With implementation of GST in the country, the GST portal has now become cash book, ledger and accounts book for the trading community instead of the traditional "bahi khaata". 

"Diwali puja, considered to be the most auspicious for the traders is particularly performed at business places and since GST portal has also become business place, therefore, we performed Diwali puja of GST Portal also along with conducting pooja at our physical stores," said Praveen Khandelwal, Secretary General of the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) which has mooted this unique initiative. 

The traders while worshipping the GST portal prayed for its smooth functioning to liberate the traders from GST hardships & technology bottleneck. 

CAIT National President BC Bhartia said that Diwali puja gives a message that traders are not lagging behind in embracing technology.
