Submission of my Comments on the Proposed Registration Process in GST at mygov.in: Relevant Extract of the submission are as follows:
It seems that neither state and nor centre are ready to shed their powers and want to exercise the powers to the last extent. Otherwise there would have been no reason for having dual process of registration. The forwarding of the application to the officers of both State and Centre to be considered separately on same issues and same documents would be regressive and harassment for the tax payer. It would be regressive to say the least. The application of the taxpayer would be oscillating between the two ends and the taxpayer would be trying to make the two ends meet.

There should be one registering authority as provided in the comments of the department of Revenue to the First Discussion Paper of GST as the registration for CGST and SGST has to be granted on the basis of same set of documents and with no new information coming to either of them through application process. At one point we are talking of ease of business and on the other hand we are making the registration that much more taxing and long enduring process.
