“The current double taxation structure on Software segment is not conducive for the domestic IT market growth. Today, enterprises have to pay both service tax and state VAT on the purchase of software which limits the growth of legitimate software market, especially among SMBs, in India. The government should address the issue by abolishing the double tax structure and ensure effective implementation which will help accelerate growth, while reducing software piracy in India.”
