New Delhi, June 28 (IBNS): Steel Authority of India Ltd. (SAIL) on Wednesday said it is readying itself for a smooth transition into the new tax regime, which will come into effect with the introduction of GST from July 1.

"The introduction of GST is a significant step in the Country’s taxation regime which will have far reaching and positive impact on Indian Economy. Implementation of this huge transformation process, requires detailed planning and clear understanding of the effects it will have, on the existing systems and procedures.

The Company recently announced that it aims at marketing 15 Million Tonnes of saleable steel during the current fiscal and it is also adopting a demand based production model to reassert its market share. In such circumstances, the Company believes that, a unified tax structure of GST will help in creating national market while reducing burden of multiple taxation on buyer and enhancing the business sentiments.
