NIELIT Director General Ashwini Kumar Sharma notified that Meity Secretary Aruna Sundararajan has also mandated NIELIT to make effort to provide GST training to traders and people who are interested in it, so that they are not made victim of any middlemen when this new tax system is rolled out.

He said that the NIELIT fund to impart GST training has to be allocated by Finance Ministry.

The Ministry of Electronics and IT (Meity) has already started training entrepreneurs, who run common service centres in rural area.

Sharma said that NIELIT has plans to expand its facility and mainly by using funds generated by itself. NIELIT Bhawan has been completed in span of less than two years. The foundation stone was laid by Prasad in May 2015.

He said that NIELIT has plans to set up about 15 new campuses in Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, Odisha and Uttarakhand. During the event, Prasad also inaugurated online accreditation portal, which has objective to reduce time and paper documentations for grant of accreditation to private training institutes. Besides, a new concept has also been introduced by NIELIT, whereby candidates shall now be awarded e-certificate on completion of a single module.
