Vanaja N. Sarna, Chairman, Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC), New Delhi, laid the foundation stone for the National Academy of Customs, Indirect Taxes and Narcotics (NACIN) for its Zonal Training Centre at Attapur in Hyderabad.

The new project which entails construction of the modern training facility is expected to be developed with an outlay of Rs 47 crore and is scheduled for completion within two years.

The Institute is expected to augment the training infrastructure in the area of GST and taxpayer services.

The proposed campus will consist of separate blocks for training, administration, and hostel, besides sports and recreational facilities, according to a statement.

NACIN is the apex Institute of Central Government which takes care of capacity building of civil servants in the filed of indirect taxation, particularly in the areas of GST, Customs and Narcotics.

As a nodal agency for training of the GST stakeholders, NACIN has been playing a crucial role in training of GST officers of the Centre and States.

The Chairman, who reviewed the performance of the Hyderabad and Vizag zones, with regard to GST implementation, said coordinated efforts of both Centre and State GST officers in every State would immensely help the taxpayers as well as the Government in effective implementation of GST, with least litigations.

The Institute is planned to be energy efficient, environmentally responsible and differently-abled friendly. It is expected to cater to training of about 10,000 officers of both Centre and State of Telangana and organise select national and international seminars and workshops.

Rating the Hyderabad Zone performance as commendable, the CBEC Chairman lauded the efforts of the Hyderabad and Vizag zones for conducting the highest number of GST outreach programmes.
