Uploading of Information relating to some intra state transactions made compulsory in Punjab

Punjab Govt has issued a public notice to the effect making it compulsory to upload the data of invoices to be issued on the official website of the Department even in case of intra state transactions(i.e transactions within the state) in the prescribed format, where the amount of bill is in excess of Rs 200000 except in case of Iron and Steel, Cotton bales and yarn, Edible oils, Timber, Marble, Tiles of all kinds, in which case the amount is in excess of Rs 20000.

  Uptill now it is only interstate transactions the data of which is required to be uploaded but now it has also been extended to some intrastate transactions as well. This in my view will be an undue harrasment to the small dealers since the small dealers may not be computer literate or having sufficient computer equipments to oblige with the instructions given in the public notice. Although this move has been made by the govt to plug in the loophole for evasion of tax but its my personal view that instead of it the maintenence of stock register may be made compulsory in an alternative to this measure.However the said notice states that this will be mandatory w.e.f 01-06-2011.

The relevant Public Notice is produced herebelow for ready reference:
