From today, no sales tax check post when you cross border

Thodupuzha: The four sales tax check posts in Idukki district will stop functioning from today.

From now, the Kerala-Tamil Nadu border will only have excise, forest, motor vehicles and animal check posts.

The sales tax check post has been closed following the implementation of the good and services tax (GST).

The sales tax check posts at Kumali, Kambammettu, Modimettu and Chennar had stopped inspecting vehicles since July 1. The 39 staffers at these four check posts were redeployed at other offices in Idukki. Now these check posts serve as token gates to collect tokens from vehicles coming from other states.

The buildings from where the check posts used to function will now be converted into rest houses for the intelligence department personnel who come to inspect the borders.
