The GST System Project is a unique and complex IT initiative as it established for the first time a uniform interface for the taxpayer under indirect taxes through a common and shared IT infrastructure between the Centre and States. The Centre and State indirect tax administrations which used to work under different laws, regulations, procedures and formats and consequently the IT systems worked as independent sites, were integrated into one system with uniform formats and interfaces for taxpayers and other external stakeholders.
