Assocham seeks tax sops, GST in budget to revive growth
June, 03rd 2014

Industry body Assocham today pitched for early rollout of GST, revival of SEZs, a stable tax regime, slashing of tax rates and tax incentives for creation of Indian brands to be introduced in the first Union budget under Narendra Modi-led government.

The industry chamber shared its suggestions for reviving growth and boosting the manufacturing sector in a pre-budget consultation meeting with Revenue Secretary Rajiv Takru here.

"The first Union budget by the new government should reflect its tax policy direction to stimulate economic growth, contain inflation and create conducive environment for investment especially in manufacturing and infrastructure which generates large-scale employment," Assocham said. The industry chamber sought tax incentives to promote in-house R&D and create Indian brands.

"It is vital that tax incentives for creation of Indian brands be introduced in the coming budget to promote national and corporate energies to create world-class Indian brands. Such global brands can contribute increasingly to import substitution and value added exports," Assocham said.

Among other things, it sought extension of tax benefits to telecom and power sectors, simplification of tax structure, bringing down personal and corporate income tax rates, slashing of excise duty and service tax rates to 10 per cent from 12 per cent and creation of a conducive tax regime for attracting investments.

Pointing out that indirect tax has always been an effective tool to drive economic and social growth, Assocham pressed for the indirect tax structure to be replaced with Goods and Services Tax (GST) to integrate India into a single economy and provide a unified tax policy for the country. "It is now time to act and implement GST at the earliest," it said.

For revival of special economic zones (SEZs), the chamber suggested immediate withdrawal of Minimum Alternate Tax (MAT) and Dividend Distribution Tax (DDT) while restoring the SEZ policy to its present form.
