Chief Minister said that about 75 to 80 per cent businessmen were small businessmen in the State and they would be immensely benefitted from this decision of the Union Government. He said that till date, over 92000 dealers have already registered under GST and out of these over 80 per cent would be benefitted as they would be required to file lesser number of returns per annum.

Chief Minister said that apart from this major decision, the Centre Government has also agreed that all the Business Concerns with annual turnover up to Rs. 5 crores would now be required to file quarterly returns. Earlier this limit was Rs. 1.5 crores and the businessmen were facing difficulty in and would now be relieved from the pressure of filing many returns on small businesses, he said.

 Shri Jai Ram Thakur said that the decision of the Union Government to reduce GST rates on washing machines, refrigerators mixers, footwear etc. would also provide much-needed relief to middle classes.
