According to Manish Singh, founder member of the AHSPI, many service providers are worried about the GST implementation and have been calling up their chartered accountants who seem to be very busy with their other clients. The AHSPI will help create awareness among its members about GST as well as GST compliant software for booking, inventory management and billing purposes.
