MUMBAI: Fifteenth finance commission chairman NK Singh on Friday called for major changes in the GST structure, including reducing the cumbersome compliance procedures and also doing away with frequent rate changes, to improve collection.
He also pitched for a rationalisation in Centrally-sponsored schemes, and blamed the Government for not clearly
defining the role of the Niti Aayog, which as of now does not have any powers to take financial decisions.
The comments from the chief of the commission that decides on the revenue distribution between the Centre and the
states, come amidst concerns about the continuous fall in GST collection which has not touched the targeted Rs 1 lakh crore
every month barring one month. (AGENCIES)
