Patiala, July 31, 2020 : In a move aimed at facilitating the submission of the inter-state sale details by the VAT assesses and keeping in view the requests made by the business community, Punjab State Tax Department made available an online utility for submission of the inter-state sale details.
Divulging the details, Nilkanth Avhad, State Taxation Commissioner, said that the newly launched utility would not only give opportunity to the business community to pre-fill all the requisite data before manual submission of the statutory forms (Form C,E,F etc) required under CST Act, 1956, rather it will also reduce the contact time between the ward in-charge and the traders, keeping in view the COVID-19, he added.
