Work was affected in some commercial tax offices across the country on Wednesday due to a day-long pen-down strike by tax officers of various state governments.

The strike call was given by the All India Confederation of Commercial Taxes Association (AICCTA), which claims to represent over 36,000 gazetted officers and about 2 lakh Class-III and IV employees in support of their demand of having a fair share in the administration of taxes under the GST regime.

Uttarakhand Commercial Tax Service Association President Yashpal Singh, who is also head of the NCR chapter of AICCTA, said the strike was successful in most states and a considerable number of employees participated in the protest.

The confederation is seeking complete authority relating to monitoring, audit, assessment and enforcement activities provided either under the GST Act or the Integrated Goods and Services Tax — to be levied on all inter-state supplies of goods and services. GST is a single tax to be levied on supply of goods and services, right from the manufacturer to the consumer.
