New Delhi: The Lucknow University has decided to introduce a six-month certificate course on the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

The decision was taken after Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma in a meeting with the vice-chancellors had reportedly said that universities in UP must educate people on GST.

The admission forms for the course will be available from the first week of August, Times of India reported.

According to a university press release, the course will be a four-credit programme out of which two will be for skill development and training while others will be for theory. The university has also plans to conduct two seminars which will feature speakers like tax officers, chartered accountants and consultants.

Meanwhile, to create a workforce of GST-trained professionals, the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) announced a 100-hour certificate course to understand the new tax regime.

The course will start from July 15 in three cities. The training programme—conceptualised under the central government's flagship scheme of Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY)—would be conducted in Delhi, Bengaluru, and Bhopal.

The course was formally announced by MSDE Secretary K.P. Krishnan. It would be conducted at 100 centres across the three cities mentioned.

Chartered accountants, company secretaries, graduates and post-graduates in commerce, banking, statistics, financial markets and business administration can undergo the training programme.

"It's a historic reform that the government has brought in. We welcome this change and will contribute to our best of efforts to align to the new regime," Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, said in a statement, referring to the new Goods and Services Tax (GST), that came into effect from July 1.
