GSTN aims to integrate indirect tax ecosystem on a shared IT infrastructure GSTN – Goods and Services Tax Network
To establish a uniform interface for the tax payer and a common and shared IT infrastructure between the Centre and States, the GST System Project has been set up. Earlier, the indirect tax administrations of Centre and State has worked under different laws, regulations, procedures and formats and the IT systems work as independent sites.
Integrating them for GST implementation would involve integrating the entire indirect tax ecosystem so as to bring all the tax administrations (Centre, State and Union Territories) to the same level of IT maturity with uniform formats and interfaces for taxpayers and other external stakeholders.
A robust settlement mechanism amongst the States and the Centre is required for GSTN and this is possible only when there is a strong IT Infrastructure and Service backbone which enables capture, processing and exchange of information amongst the stakeholders (including tax payers, States and Central Governments, Accounting Offices, Banks and RBI).
