    Finance minister Arun Jaitley on Saturday stated that generation of cash will become difficult as a consequence of demonetisation combined with the execution of the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

    “Demonetisation combined with the execution of Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime will make generation of cash far more challenging, assist towards the objective by generating greater compliance and raising digitisation,” he explained in the ‘Delhi Economics Conclave 2017’ here organised by the finance ministry.

    Jaitley said that both had contributed to also a citizen base for both indirect and direct taxes and a growth in transactions.

    “Signs of raising digitisation are already observable concerning expansion of direct and indirect citizen base,” he mentioned.

    Jaitley said three measures — penalising people who had stashed cash that was illegal overseas, benami land law and Bankruptcy and Insolvency Code — attacked the black cash in the computer system.
