Civil aviation ministry seeks GST deferment
The civil aviation ministry has sought postponement of the GST implementation by two months on the ground that airlines need more time to revamp their systems to comply with the new tax regime.
The goods and services tax (GST) is scheduled to be rolled out from July 1 and preparations are at an advanced stage.
Against this backdrop, the ministry has written to the finance ministry seeking deferral of the GST implementation by two months.
According to a senior ministry official, the deferment has been sought as airlines are not yet ready with their systems to be in compliance with GST.
