UPA government set up GST Network (GSTN) to create the IT backbone for GST. Under the BJP government, Infosys was given a Rs. 1380 Crore contract to design, develop and maintain the GSTN.
Out of the 84-85 lakh taxpayers that need to enrol with GSTN, so far 56 lakhs have done so. Out of 60,000 tax officers to be trained, only 2000 have been trained so far. Beta testing is being carried out currently.
