VAT Circulars from 2010 to 2014 ABOUT THE BOOKState of Haryana holds special Importance in the field of taxation as It was the first State in India to introduce VAT. This is one of the main reasons that t have special Interest towards Haryana VAT. I have given my all energies to ensure that this book enumerates and analyses all the provisions of Haryana VAT This book will ensure that its readers get sufficient material on each provision also relevant rules, notifications, circulars etc. would be Interpreted thereunder. It IS a common knowledge that VAT IS a State concept and It differs from one State to another However. I guarantee that this book IS not for the State of Haryana only. White drafting this book we made sure that numerous Judicial rulings whether given on Haryana VAT Act or on any other Act should be Interpreted and reproduced under relevant section In Division C of this book. I think this portion of ruling would be of great Importance not only to professionals working In the State of Haryana but In other States also. In this second edition. we have revised the whole book Incorporating changes thereto till 25th May. 2014 We have added numerous Case Laws to maintain the edge of this book against various other publications.
