I am a Mutual fund agent just like Insurance agent who earn a living by distributing mutual fund schemes where the investment is collected in the name of Muual fund company.We are liable to pay GST at a very high rate without collecting from investors.It is our request to roll back the ongoing mechanism which is quite regressive for our work.
