Four Motor Vehicle Check Gates had been operating at the state border of Assam viz Chagolia M.V. Check Gate, Dhubri District; Srirampur M.V.Check Gate in Kokrajhar District, Digharkhal M.V.Check Gate in Cachar District and Khanapara M.V. Check Point at Guwahati.
However, with GST coming into force, the Government of Assam has decided to shut all check gates, reducing transportation cost of essential items coming from other States. The Finance Minister of Assam, Himanta Biswa Sarma, announced this decision will apply to even those gates dealing with non-GST items. The Government will suffer loss of revenue in departments such as departments like Excise, Transport and the Agriculture Marketing Board because of this decision, but the actual impact will be known only after a year.
