Ludhiana, July 14, 2017: Punjab Pradesh Beopar Mandal secretary Mohinder Aggarwal has made an appeal to Union Finnace Minister to remove discrepancies prevailing in the recently launched GST.
In an interview with `City Air News” (please watch the video clip), Aggarwal asserted that there was need to remove all the prevailing discrepancies. He cited many examples of discrepancies prevailing in electronics items. He opined that GST should not be more than 18 per cent on electronic items as these items were not “luxury ones”.
