GST impact: Queues of trucks across states get shorter
The roll-out of GST will ensure smooth movement of trucks across state borders. Border commercial tax check posts have been abolished in 22 states after the GST launch on July 1. Also, eight states – Assam, Himachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Punjab, Mizoram and Tripura – are in the process of removing them. Now, the GST will be imposed even on inter-branch transfers but input tax credit will be given, which was not the case under the CST.
