As a GSP, the company will serve all the stakeholders and is open to collaborate with Chartered Accountant firms, Lawyers and consultancy firms. Mr. Gagan Rai, Managing Director andCEO, said, “The GST initiative holds the potential to be a highly powerful reform. Our partnership with GSTN is a significant one and can be traced back to when we were a part of the nationwide GST pilot project. We are in the process of making available this comprehensive software which can be used even by other ASPs to avail NSDL e-Gov GSP services by registering on our GSP portal. Additionally, we are also planning to provide affordable comprehensive solutions to small and medium sized businesses”
