Like 26AS statement it should reflect in some govt site.
My suggestion is that, GST should be paid by distributor or whole-sheller. So that 360 Degree view can be formed. Manufacture Whole sheller and govt should be the stake holders.
Same with Consumer who is paying with MRP. No changes for consumer, more

Further, 18 months only have passed since the introduction of the new tax regime and more or less now, all the issues have been sorted out. GST council meets regularly and addresses the issues raised and it is an ongoing process for any new tax law.
