With people still struggling to come to terms with GST, billed as the biggest economic and tax reform undertaken by the Government of India in country's fiscal history, Odisha made way for its first Venvik GST Suvidha Kendra on Thursday. The centre would be a one-stop destination for all GST solutions offering services such as new GST number, registration or migration, uploading invoices to file GST returns (GSTR) and many other related services.
Venvik Tech Solutions is a diversified company which deals with projects of government, semi-government and private sector/MNCs with unique management expertise. The company has partnered with Odisha-based AP Enterprises for smooth functioning of GST Suvidha Kendras in the state. Although this is their first store in Odisha, the company has planned to establish 150 more stores across the entire state within this week.
The store, located at Bapuji Nagar, was inaugurated by Union Minister Jual Oram, who said that the centre will prove to be a boon for the common man wherein they can avail services at a very nominal cost. He further added, “I understand that there is still some confusion among the people regarding GST and even till date, many people are not able to get ‘comfortable’ with this tax reform. But I can assure that like other new inventions, this too will be very helpful for the public. Once the initial issues are resolved, this service would also be appreciated by all.”
Talking about their vision and plans for Odisha, Chief Executive Officer, Venvik Tech Solution E. Sreedhar said, “We would be developing around 900 GST Suvidha Kendras all across the Odisha in near future. The centre will aim to ease the compliance burden of small business class people who can migrate to GST at a reasonable fee. These kendras will reduce the burden of filing GST returns of prospective clients and pave way for making India’s biggest tax reform a success."
