“A self-training module is available on the gst.gov.in that could be used for understanding the process. All verifications of documents will be done online. If all documents are provided, the process will be completed in three days,” an official said.
According to the Trade and Taxes department, it would also train some traders at different market hubs who could further help members of their fraternity.
