Dear colleagues and esteemed tax payers, welcome to Hyderabad GST Zonal website. It gives me an immense pleasure to inform you that this Zone has visualized, conceptualized and embarked upon an ambitious target of developing a website embedding all the requisite information in one place for the benefit of both-the officers as well as the tax payers. Living in an era wherein the entire nation is anxiously waiting for the biggest tax reform since independence i.e. Goods and Services Tax (GST), the Hyderabad GST Zone cannot but upbridge itself to keep up the pace with the evolving times. This website is a testimony to the fact that the entire Hyderabad Zonal formation of CBEC will be continuously striving to create a well efficient, easily accessible and sustainable platform for all kinds of stakeholders-ranging from the eminent members of Trade and industry to the general public at large.
This Zone has been continuously contributing to the National exchequer over the years with a dedicated system of well trained officers and staff coupled with the use of latest technology for the benefit of tax payers. To cite an example, the total revenue realized in FY 2016-17 grew by 12.5% over the previous year notwithstanding the negative market sentiment and sluggish growth experienced in the year gone by. To cope up with the unforeseen challenges that are likely to crop up in the new GST regime, the Zone under the guidance and help received from DGHRD, New Delhi had taken up the task of cadre restructuring. As a result, the present Administrative set-up of this Zone is as follows:
|| No. of Divisions
|| No. of Ranges
Thus, the zone for administrative convenience has been divided into 30 Divisions with 150 ranges. Apart from these, there are two Audit Commissionerates with 8 circles each. Further administrative set-up is lucidly elaborated in the link given to the administrative set-up on the home page of this website.
Furthermore, this website contains elaborate details about the initiatives taken for efficient taxpayer services. Prominent amongst them is the setting up of GST Seva Kendras along with the Guidance manual that can be easily accessed by the taxpayers from the tab provided on the home page of this website. Also, in order to help the trade and industry and especially the MSME’s, this website has come up with a unique aspect wherein inquisitive traders, manufacturers and service suppliers can request for a GST Outreach program to be conducted by the departmental officers at the venue and time convenient to the requesting taxpayers.
Not to mention that it is important on the GST journey, the tax administration proactively assures taxpayers especially small and medium taxpayers that trade facilitation is a cornerstone of the new tax regime. I am confident that this website will function as a one shop-stop solution for all the practical needs of the taxpayers and the general public at large thereby taking a leap forward in visualising the Hon’ble Prime Minister’s goal of Ease of Doing Business.
