MP Food Min Om Prakash Dhurve Calls GST ‘A Game of Understanding’


With the constant fire from the opposition over the Goods and Service Tax, Madhya Pradesh Food and Civil Supplies Minister Om Prakash Dhurve addressed a discussion on demonetisation and GST in Umaria district of Madhya Pradesh, to mark the one year anniversary of Demonetisation.

“The benefits have not come up yet, but they will. GST is a complicated affair, even I have not been able to understand it till now,” he said.

Even big CAs have not been able to understand GST completely yet, how are we expecting ourselves to understand it and factor in the benefits it will provide us in the future? This is a game of understanding the reforms, once you understand them, everything will look good and better.

Dhurve gave his remarks at a discussion on noteban and GST in Umaria on Wednesday, ahead of a crucial meeting of the GST Council scheduled on Friday.
