However, Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani has seen some good in GST.
On Sunday, Irani tweeted a news story that claimed that GST was actually helping job growth—by helping chartered accountants.
Naturally, Twitter decided to school the minister.
That's like saying a major Earthquake led to a boom in construction jobs.— Gabbbar (@GabbbarSingh) December 17, 2017

Dear Ma'am, This is not an achievement.. it shows #GST is so complex that normal traders are unable to understand it and they must need help of CA or Tax Consultant. It it bring additional cost to traders. pic.twitter.com/OULzM5ohKp— Chandel (@chandelaas) December 17, 2017
Not really a thing to be happy about. CAs are in demand for resolving complexities arising from GST. And who is responsible for the complexities?— Abhijit Deshmukh (@Abhi_M_Deshmukh) December 17, 2017
Are you dumb! I'm myself a CA student, but this demand for GST has enhanced due to complexities in GST filing, which by any chance is not good for traders. Yale University me Nahi sikha Kya?— Siddharth Patni (@aageSeLeftLelo) December 17, 2017
Which only means that GST is complicated and small traders now has to also pay CAs and are at their mercy for interpretation of complex law— प्रियंका (@pandey_priyanka) December 17, 2017
We are not sure if anyone’s told Irani that the idea of GST was to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the existing taxation system, not really help Chartered Accountants.
