The concessions given in GST rates would go a long way in ending the "suffering" of the business community and the buyers will also benefit, he told reporters here.
The BJP on returning to power would extend all help and relief to the business community along with others, the former chief minister said.
Dhumal claimed that Mandi rally of the Congress failed to evoke much response and in fact it was a "big failure".
He said that even by managing support from the official agencies, the crowd in rally was not more than 15,000.
Three months after the rollout of the new indirect tax regime, the GST Council yesterday made sweeping changes to give relief to small and medium businesses on filing and payment of taxes, eased rules for exporters and cut tax rates on more than two dozen items.
Businesses with annual turnover of up to Rs 1.5 crore, which constitute 90 per cent of the taxpayer base but pay only 5-6 per cent of total tax, have been allowed to file quarterly income returns and pay tax instead of the current provision of monthly filings.
