"Considering the possible impact on Nepal's trade with India following the implementation of the GST, we wrote to the Indian authorities to ensure that the new tax system should not infringe on bilateral trade", Rabi Shankar Sainju, Joint Secretary at Nepal's Ministry of Commerce, told Xinhua news agency.

He said that it was not possible for traders to sell goods above the maximum retail price in the name of GST.

In this connection, the Secretary said his department had received 2,20,000 applications for new registrations under GST of which around half were fully completed.
