With the roll out of the GST 22 states, including Delhi, Maharashtra, West Bengal and Haryana have removed border check posts to experience a smooth changeover to the new tax regime. Eight states including Himachal Pradesh, Assam and some North Eastern states are also in the process of abolishing check posts. GST which came into effect from July 1, except Jammu and Kashmir, has one major objective which is to make India a single market where there is smooth flow of goods and services. With the abolition of taxes the long queues resulting in delay in delivery of goods often witnessed at state borders will not be seen.
Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu are some of the other states which have abolished check posts.
