NEW DELHI, Aug 30 - Two months after the rollout of GST, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said apprehensions with regard to the indirect tax regime have been proven to be unfounded and a smooth transition has happened.
He asked chief secretaries of all states to further boost efforts to increase registration under GST (Goods and Services Tax) and to achieve a quantum jump in this regard within a month, a PMO statement said.
The Prime Minister was chairing his 21st meeting of Pro-Active Governance and Timely Implementation (PRAGATI), a monthly interaction with top officials of states through a video conference.
GST was rolled out on July 1, ushering in a uniform indirect tax system in the country.
The last 20 meetings of PRAGATI have seen a cumulative review of 183 projects with a total investment of Rs 8.79 lakh crore, according to the PMO statement. � PTI
