Amid data security concerns, the GST
Council will take a call on converting GST
Network (GSTN), the IT backbone of the indirect tax system, into a government-owned company during its meeting on Friday.
However, irrespective of government ownership, manpower-related flexibility was likely to be provided through a built-in human resource policy, officials said.
GSTN CEO Prakash Kumar had told Business Standard earlier that “hiring and firing” was faster since it was a private company and the private sector salary structure helped it hire the right kind of people.
