GST was most comprehensive tax reform the nation has seen: President Kovind

President, Ram Nath Kovind today said that Goods and Services Tax (GST)  was the most comprehensive tax reform the nation has seen.
Addressing the 68th batch of IRS (Customs and Central Excise) probationers at Rashtrapati Bhawan today, President said it was a matter of satisfaction that the GST regime had been implemented successfully in ushering in a progressive tax structure that will benefit the economy and honest taxpayers.

The President urged probationers to ensure that the GST reform was implemented across the nation. Mr. Kovind said a nation’s tax structure should be just, efficient, honest and equitable and as administrators, it is the primary duty of IRS officers to ensure that the country has tax resources to fund different aspects of development.
