My Dear Students,

Hearty greetings !

As the Goods and Service Tax (GST) moves closer to the launch date, July 1, anxiety is palpable. People, especially small traders and business persons are scared of the complex procedure of filing multiple tax returns, as we the Chartered Accountants and Chartered Accountant Students who are the front runners in this mega tax reform of the country, we need to work hard and understand the new law and help others, particularly business community to understand and implement it smoothly. So that we can claim ourselves that, we are the true partners in nation building.
