New Delhi, July 19 (IANS) The rollout of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) has not been glitch-free and has thrown up issues on various fronts, including the entertainment tax, textile and MSME and other sectors, CBEC Chairperson Vanaja Sarna said on Wednesday.

Sarna added that the issues will, however, get ironed out over time.

"The last 18 days of GST have thrown problems, it has not been glitch-free. We have had issues from textile, entertainment tax and micro small and medium enterprises (MSMEs)," the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) Chairperson said here.

She was speaking at an interactive session on 'Transition to GST Implementation' organised by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).

However, she said that no "earth-shaking" hurdles have arisen and the issues that have cropped up "will get ironed out over time".
