India Cyber Proofs New GST Portal

The Indian Government has said that 4.85 million taxpayers have been enrolled to use India's goods and services tax portal, the GST Network (GSTN).

The GSTN will be the one-stop shop portal for the administration of India's new GST regime, which is due to be introduced from July 2017.

The Indian Government has said it is taking the steps necessary to ensure robust cyber security safeguards are in place. Indian officials have also received training on cyber security matters.

Under the GST proposals, the various elements of the existing indirect tax regime in India will be replaced by a comprehensive dual-GST system, with Central GST and State GST to be levied concurrently by the center (federal Government) and the states, respectively. The centrally levied indirect taxes that would be replaced by the GST include CENVAT, the central excise duty, services tax, customs duties, and any related surcharges. State-levied taxes that would be subsumed by the GST include VAT, sales taxes, entertainment and gambling taxes, the luxury tax, certain entry taxes, and related state surcharges.
