"जीएसटी से पहले देश में 17 अलग-अलग प्रकार के टैक्‍स हुआ करते थे। लेकिन अब इस व्‍यवस्‍था में सिर्फ एक ही टैक्‍स पूरे देश में लागू है। पहले देश में काफी बार टैक्‍स के मामले में इंस्पेक्‍टर ... की शिकायतें आती रहती थीं। जीएसटी में इंस्‍पेक्‍टर की जगह इंफोरमेशन टेक्‍नोलॉजी ने ले ली है। रिटर्न से लेकर रिफंड तक सब कुछ ऑनलाइन इंफोरमेशन टेक्‍नोलॉजी के द्वारा होता है"।

"The Mundka - Bahadurgarh stretch, with seven stations, is an extension of the existing Green Line from Inderlok to Mundka.
