GST compliance regime not yet simple, says CAG

The government has failed to put in place a simplified tax compliance regime even after two years of the GSTroll-out, according to Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG). “The complexity of return mechanism and the technical glitches resulted in roll back of invoice-matching, rendering the system prone to ITC frauds. Thus, on the whole, the envisaged GST tax compliance system is non-functional," the CAG said a report submitted in Parliament. The CAG said that one significant area where the full potential of GST roll out has not been achieved is the roll out of the simplified tax compliance regime.
