      Sir,our PMji has broader vision for people's reactions to GST on fast moving consumer items and acted promptly on the review of the facts with the Fiance Minister so as to bring relaxation techniques for each item.It is a good remark of the very few (fingercount ) political leaders of inner at ude to express flexibility or firmness in actions implemented .Many political leaders are taking unilateral decisions on the issues with out reviewing the facts and figures. Hence the PM ji 's actions are object oriented. Thanks

              I am an industrialist mfg. rubber products and one of customer is SEZ unit. To supply to SEZ bond is required in GST because my turn over is Less than 1 crore. It is very difficult to get the bond because the procedure is very expensive and time consuming. So please look at this matter which may help us in future.
