President Message



 

 Dear friends & Colleagues,

As per Vikram Samvat calendars the Saawan month has ended with “’Raksha  Bandhan’ after sizzling summer sun, with dark moisture – laden clouds and refreshing breeze all around and the air smells ‘clean’. Similarly GST in the economy of the country beginning the major changes with merits but few demerits. Nothing in this world is permanent except the ‘CHANGE’.  As Benjamin Franklin said “when you are finished changing, you are finished’. Everywhere & all around us everybody in the street, markets, bus, trains, metro, flights are talking about the new legislation ’GST’.

In my opinion we must face and embrace change with a sprit of challenge & adventure.

Tax evasion will reduce & investment might get boosted with credits available for goods & services. But the business will have to be registered in many states, the cost of services will be higher and most of the MSME & small entrepreneurs are not computer literate for this structure. They have to depend on the others for the entire process including return filling.

However continuity gives us routes, changes gives us branches, letting us stretch and grow and reach new heights.
