The ‘space shuttle’ made-in-India effort.

For the first time in its history, the Indian Space Research Organisation (‪#‎ISRO‬) is set to undertake the maiden launch of its very own version of a ‘space shuttle’, a fully made-in-India effort.
Very soon and if all goes well possibly before the monsoon sets in, India’s space port at Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh will witness the launch of the indigenously made Reusable Launch Vehicle – Technology Demonstrator (RLV-TD).
After launch, it will be glided back onto a virtual runway in the Bay of Bengal. This flight will test the capability of the vehicle to survive a re-entry at speeds higher than that of sound, so it is called a hyper sonic experiment (HEX).

In the wake of extreme delay in implementation of GST and being highly perturbed with ongoing game of political scoring on GST, the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) today sent a communication to Congress President Mrs. Sonia Gandhi urging her to support GST so that the much awaited tax reform in the Country should see light of the day. The CAIT has accused Congress of adopting double standards since on jewelers issue it was pro-active but on GST issue it diid not bother to consult the traders so far. The CAIT has decided to launch a nationwide aggressive protest campaign on GST which will include various protests against all such parties who are opposing GST. The CAIT has convened a meeting of its National Governing Council on forthcoming 20-21 June at New Delhi to finalise future course of action on GST.
 ” We can not wait for an indefinite period for roll out of GST and being one of the prime carriers of taxation system we can not be a mute spectator any more and enjoy every right to intervene in the matter and seek early implementation of GST in India. We want GST to be passed in next session of the Parliament at any cost”-said CAIT National President Mr. B.C.Bhartia & Secretary General Mr. Praveen Khandelwal ..Meanwhile the CAIT has decided to meet leaders of all political parties urging them to support GST whereas it will send memorandum to Chief Ministers of all States. The protest campaign will include protest march, burning of effigies of the leaders opposing GST, protest rally. A Bharat Bandh in protest against lethargic attitude of the political parties is also not ruled out by CAIT.
In its communication to Mrs. Sonia Gandhi, the CAIT said that the roadblocks are giving a dismal picture of such an important tax reform in the Country which has become more of a political battle rather than a tax reform. We understand that scoring of political points is an essential ingredient of democratic system but tax reform like GST must be kept much above of any political agenda. We are constrained to note that in matter of GST, the polity has failed to pass litmus test.
Taking a jib at Congress Vice President Shri Rahul Gandhi, the CAIT said that Rahul Gandhi took a suo-motto cognizance of the recent strike by jewelers fraternity on matter of excise and even attended trader’s rally for which we express our gratitude. But we are sorry to note that on issue of GST, which is crucial to traders, the Congress party has not came out with similar spirit in engaging with trade so far to elicit their view point. It would have been better if efficiency shown on jewelers issue could have been applied on GST might have fetched laurels. It speaks how serious the Congress party is about this important issue.
It also said that it is a known fact that the trade & industry is subject to multiple taxation & multiple authorities making the tax administration more complex.  Subsuming of various Central & State level taxes in GST will simplify & rationalise tax structure and will make compliance more easy and will also offload stakeholders from much paperwork. However, the stalling of GST Bill has vitiated our hopes to a great extent.
It is pertinent to mention that we also have our own concerns about proposed GST but stalling of passage of GST Bill in Parliament, is depriving us from the opportunity of being heard since after passing of the Bill in Parliament, the process of separate legislation for Central GST (CGST), Integrated GST (IGST) will be tabled in Parliament and State GST (SGST) will be passed by State legislatures and such time will give an opportunity to the stakeholders to submit their concerns-said CAIT. It has sought audience with Mrs. Sonia Gandhi on this complex issue.
