Modi govt accepts Congress demand on GST bill: Union Parliamentary Minister Venkaah Naicu met with Congress president Sonia Gandhi to talk about the passage of bills that were crucial in the corning budget session of Parliament.
The NDA government has consented to accept the conditions laid down from the opposition Congress party to back a milestone tax reform, the parliamentary affairs minister told reporters. The GST bill — which plans to replace a sequence of local and central levies for example octroi and excise using a single tax — is an integral part of the reform program of the government that’s run into rough weather in Parliament.
The GST bill had not been passed amid the uproar on the National Herald controversy where Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi were named accused from the court in Parliament. Despite the fact that the authorities have a brute majority in the Lok Sabha, it was not able to develop a consensus.
The lower house was not considerably less productive than the Rajya Sabha. Several state governments have been in support of the bill as it seeks to bring greater sales to their various treasuries.
