GST rollout, launch in India: Traders will not face any harassment after the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) from tomorrow, Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma has said. Sharma held a meeting with leaders of various trade organisations in the state in Lucknow yesterday. “He has told us that law-abiding traders need not worry and that only tax evaders will attract punitive action under the GST,” Ravi Kant Garg, the vice-president of the Uttar Pradesh Uddyog Vyapaar Pratinidhi Mandal, told reporters here today.
