Under this MMP, various recommendations have been made to facilitate simplification of administrative procedures and reduction of processing timelines.Some of the key recommendations are noted below:
Electronic filing of returns
Electronic clearance of refunds

Online dealer ledger
Online issuance of CST statutory forms
Facility to dealers to obtain various online information services
