With regard to the problems that still persist which needs to be addressed Vaish said that Government has set flat GST rate of 5 per cent without input tax credit for  the railway parts suppliers but they had to face GST  rate of 18 percent on most of their raw materials which has eaten up their working capital

With regard to the upcoming norm of  eWay bill, Vaish said that some of the provisions in the e-way bill are also flawed which will have negative impact on small scale transporters.
