UTGST-Union Territory Goods and Service Tax

Andaman and Nicobar Islands

About UTGST, A& N: Unlike in other Sates in india, there was no Sales Tax or VAT in the Union Territory of Andaman & Nicobar Islands. Most people, other than a handful of manufacturers and five hundred or so service providers registered with Central Excise & service Tax Department, were not familiar with Indirect Taxation. Before GST came into force on 1st July, 2017, the Union Territory Administration did not have any tax infrastructure.

  • With a view to implement GST in the Union Territory, the department of Union Territory Goods & Services Tax was created in May, 2017.
  • The Deputy Commissioner, South Andaman, was appointed as the Commissioner of UTGST, for whole of the Andaman & Nicobar Islands.
