THE HON'BLE UNION FINANCE MINISTER,
GOV'T OF INDIA,
SUB..REQUEST TO CANCEL THE IMPLEMENTATION OF E SUGAM TILL GST
Wish you a very Happy New Year IN ADVANCE from the members of Karnataka Hosiery and Garments Association..Under your dynamic leadership,let our country prosper further and further.We would like to get to your kind notice that ESUGAM IS BEING MADE COMPULSORY FOR ALL TRADERS w e f 01.12.11 which will effect trade and businessman in a significant manner in KARNATAKA ONLY....
Vat implementation in our state is quite smooth and traders have come to terms with it.We traders are sincerely contributing to the exchequer as it is our duty to work hand in hand with the Government..Everybody works for the Government either in the pay roll or the tax roll..Esugam is being implemented in view of cross-checking the transaction but what we have to state is that already computerised check posts, monthly returns, vigilence departments,intelligence departments are well equipped to handle genuinity of transactions..In the readymade garment trade,it is a un-organised sector,hence majority of traders are not having computers,internets and power situation also is not such rosy.These days labour shortage is huge and traders financially are not sound to maintain extra staff or they have to pay the auditor the extra sums monthly.which will be a extra financial burden..Readymade garment sector this year already facing huge crisis due to Excise and heavy increase in raw material prices and due to which our margin have taken a huge beating and it is getting difficult to make ends meet.
Any system should be easygoing. in so many department viz. income tax or excise , they are liberalizing rules and return submission are paperless and easy..Our govt. also think on above matter...The Govt should answer why it is being introduced, what are the merits/de-merits, what are the benefits for the business community etc. Simply introducing one rule or other does not make sense..The govt is voted by the people and all new rules should have the support and favour of the public..Many states having vat regime have avoided ESUGAM YET but our state is forcing traders to adopt it..Any universal law will be welcomed with less hardship to the traders & we traders need your support..
