NEW DELHI: Revenue authorities will go slow in undertaking enforcement actions under GST for the first six months as they want industry to settle down into the new indirect tax regime.

Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) Chairperson Vanaja Sarna said there will be genuine errors due to lack of understanding in the initial days.

“CBEC has enforcement authorities and I have specifically said that the first three to six months are a go-slow,I don’t want small cases to be made,” Sarna said at a CII event here. She said people will take time to fall in line and CBEC has to encourage them to come into the fold.
