New Delhi: The Delhi government will run six "GST help vans" in commercial areas to address traders' problems arising out of the new tax regime, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said on Thursday.

The government has also decided to set up help desks in small markets to help the traders there, he said.

The decision was taken after Sisodia, who also holds the finance portfolio, held a meeting with senior officers of the trade and taxes department on the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

"Government officials will be appointed at these two facilities," Sisodia posted on Twitter.

He also said the Delhi government's GST facilitation centres addressed various issues of hundreds of people.

On 30 June, a day before the GST's implementation, Sisodia had said that GST might end up in a "huge mess" if concerns over the new tax regime were not resolved in time.

"Special GST software has been tested. It is not foolproof, but they (the Centre) are going ahead with the launch. I do not understand the need for such a haste. The GST is a great idea, but its implementation is not," he had said at an event.
