SHILLONG, March 21 - Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad Sangma today informed the House that the e-way bill system would be launched in the state from�April 1.�
Replying to a query posed by Opposition Congress Member, Winnerson D Sangma on the implementation of e-way bill system in the state, the Chief Minister said that at present the manual billing is in place where the suppliers send a challan for the goods.�
He admitted that the manual system is not so effective, and, therefore the government has given the go-ahead for mobile checking till the e-way bill system is implemented.�
However, from April the entire system would be computerised which would be further strengthened the GST across the country and the tax collection would be more effective.�
Regarding the effective implementation of the new tax collection, all the officers of the Taxation Department from the level of Inspector of Taxes and above have been trained and also awareness programmes through workshops have been organised in the state, he said.�
He added that the new tax regime is very complex and in the long-run the state would stand to gain and the state�s revenue would definitely increase and tax evasion would be checked effectively.
