Delhi University is planning to include Goods and service tax (GST) in its curriculum for the students of B. Com Hons, B. Com and B.A. programs. Officials said that a proposal has been approved by the Academic Council of the University and the Executive Council is awaiting its approval.
Sunyan Kanojia, a member of the Academic Council, said the students used to study taxation in three streams. These are B.Com Honors, B.Com and B.A. programs that include Commerce-based papers. According to the new proposal, GST will replace the materials related to other indirect taxes. According to the proposal, students of B.Com will study in the sixth semester as GST and the second letter of customs law.
Students of B.Com will study it in the fifth semester from the same name as the second letter.
Students of the BA program will study GST in two letters (letter three and letter four). It will be mandatory for the BA program only for those students whose taxation is an optional subject.
Associate Professor Kanaujia, at the Delhi School of Economics, said that all the letters will be of 100 marks and it will be compulsory for the students of B.Com, B.Com and BA program, who have chosen taxation as an alternative subject.
