The Goods and Services Tax (GST) was launched on July 1 this year amid a lot of fanfare and enthusiasm. The government had even organized a mid-night parliament session to announce it to register it as a historic event in an unprecedented parallel to similar sessions that were organized only three times in history. The first such midnight Parliamentary session was organized on the August 15, 1947 when India got independence from the UK. The second and third sessions were organized when India completed 25 years and 50 years of independence in 1972 and 1997, respectively.
However, soon after this, the tax reform faced major hassles since there was a lot of confusion over filing of tax returns on the GST network portal. The government had even extended the deadline for filing the GST returns in wake of the glitches. Infosys, the company that is operating GST Network, reportedly hired 100 more engineers last month to work on the Network and make it more user-friendly.
