Finance Bill 2021: Overview of proposals on CGST Act, Customs Act and CST Act

Hon’ble F.M. Mrs. Nirmala Sitharaman unveiled the budget 2021-22 and also issued Finance Bill covering various tax proposals.  Overall, our view is that it is a balanced and a progressive budget presented by the government which will go a long way in the overall development especially the physical and the health infrastructure of our country. However in so far as the tax provisions are concerned, we have noticed excessive regulatory control by the government. More and more powers are being given to the administrative authorities tightening things too much. Power to attach bank accounts at the drop of the hat is making businesses highly vulnerable.

Here is a brief overview of tax proposals pertaining to GST, Customs and CST Act as enumerated in the Finance Bill, 2021 as introduced in Lok Sabha.
