The process of migration of more than 8 million taxpayers to the goods and services tax (GST) network kicked off on 8 November 2016, with the launch of GSTN website, as the Centre and the states gear up for a transition to this biggest singular tax reform from the next financial year. The website www.gst.gov.in will enable taxpayers located across different states to update their information and other relevant documents as a first step towards obtaining a registration number under GST.
