|The premier investigating agency of central excise i.e. DGCEI, is being renamed as Directorate General of Goods & Service Tax Intelligence (DGGSTI).
The major Indirect tax reform GST is expected to curb tax evasion, make commodities cheaper and add up to the India's GDP growth. GST will subsume excise, service tax, VAT, cesses and other local levies.
The renamed organisation is also being strengthened and expanded to become an important wing of the central government in its fight against tax evasion and black money.
