GST return filing system for micro companies should be a simplified annual return. They should not be put through those cumbersome processes of filing three returns monthly and one annually. more  
A lot of Gyaan here - But shouldn't compliance precede service requests ? If guidance is sought to condone or facilitate non-compliance, the bribe needs to be paid. If you've filed complete and accurate returns, you don't even interact with the staff - why do you need to bribe ?
When one finger points out, 3 point to ourselves !!! more  
When hand held tickets are issued on Buses, why not cash collections for retailers. more  
GST returns should be made easy. more  
Yes. Sales tax office is one of the most corrupt coz a lot of bribes can be extracted day in and day out. I was asked to pay a 50k charge and when I asked the officer to show me where such a charge was mentioned in the VAT ACT, and if it was then I'd gladly pay for which of course he too would have had to gladly make a receipt!!
It just wasn't there..... He really wanted to levy a huge bribe! Anyways in most sales tax offices bribes are openly demanded !
He even took pride in stating that he had control over most of the cinema houses and amusement parks.....
Its the Nations' cancer, slowly but surely has infiltrated into every nook and corner, and am left to wonder if the ratio of upright to corrupt officers stands at 6:4!

May be the long term solution would be to raise the standard of living of the people so as to ensure a decent living for all!

For I see that as the main difference between a developed country like the US and here!! Poverty is a dangerous weapon and pushes people to be bought over to do wrongful, illegal and corrupt acts and heinous crimes!

And to get them out of poverty, education and skilling is the only way. Of course while also curtailing the population!!!!! more
