The goods and services tax (GST) was rolled out on 1 July. It has been a 100 days of GST; no mean achievement. It has been touted as one of the biggest tax reform till date. The Central and State Governments came together to make it a success. There have also been glitches, particularly at the back end. The GST Network (GSTN) has been found struggling. Exporters as well as several other sectors of the industry have faced challenges. The GST is actually a work in progress. The GST Council, the top decision-making nodal body, has been invested with federal powers, drawing not only from the Center and state governments but also taxation power from India’s Parliament.
