Demand for improvement in e-commerce policy and GST
In this context, CAT has urged Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman that since she is the President of the GST Council, she should also start talks with CAT immediately about the distorted nature of GST. On the other hand, praising the efforts of Union Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal on the issue of e-commerce, CAT has urged them that on the large scale, foreign e-commerce companies are still grossly violating the rules and laws of the government. In order to rein in the FDI policy, a new press note should be issued, removing the shortcomings in press note 2, and the e-commerce policy should also be finalized and issued.
