Increasing Ease and Coherence in GST Day-by-Day

Pune: “Day by day, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) system is becoming more streamlined and coherent. To make this system more accessible and to ensure its effective implementation, the contribution of Cost and Management Accountants (CMA), Chartered Accountants, and Tax Practitioners who work as financial advisors for taxpayers is invaluable,” expressed Dr. Pranjali Khadse-Dhande, Deputy Commissioner of State Tax.

The 7th GST Day was celebrated by the Institute of Cost Accountants of India (ICMAI) Pune Chapter. During the event held at the CMA Bhavan in Karvenagar, CMA Dr. Sanjay Bhargave, ICMAI Central Council Member CMA Neeraj Joshi, Pune Chapter President CMA Nilesh Kekan, former president CMA Amit Apte, Vice President CMA Shrikant Ippalpalli, Secretary CMA Rahul Chincholkar, Treasurer CMA Himanshu Dave, and others were present.

Dr. Sanjay Bhargave said, “With the introduction of GST, the concept of ‘One Nation, One Tax’ is being established. There is still room for changes in the tax structure. Efforts should be made to make tax payments easier for taxpayers and to make the GST system more favorable for businesses. Efforts should be made to include petroleum companies under GST.”

CMA Neeraj Joshi and CMA Amit Apte shared their thoughts. CMA Nilesh Kekane gave the welcome address. CMA Shrikant Ippalpalli conducted the program. CMA Tanuja Mantravadi expressed gratitude.
