Puducherry Assembly passes GST Bill

Assembly

The leader of Opposition in Andhra Pradesh Assembly, Jagan Mohan Reddy a few days ago thundered that he will not let the assembly function and did exactly the same when the house sat for passing the GST bill.

Lauding the GST Bill as revolutionary, Yogi Adityanath said this was one of the biggest Bills for economic improvement in the country and added that the predecessor government in the state as well had approved the GST.

"Outside the House, YSRC leaders say they will support GST Bill, but inside the House, they are trying to obstruct the passage of the same bill", he pointed out. The bill was unanimously passed in a special session, with the opposition YSR Congress (YSRC) members creating a ruckus and choosing not to vote.

The proposed GST would broaden the tax base and result in better compliance due to a robust information technology infrastructure, state Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu said while introducing the Bill in the Legislative Assembly.

SP member Nitin Agarwal said the provisions about prosecuting traders should be removed from the bill.

"We have already taken steps to ensure that the flow of revenue will not be affected once GST is implemented".

Mr Chaudhary said there had been some doubts over the bill which had kept it pending for so long but after Yogi Adityanath said there was no need to worry, the bill was passed unanimously. "My government will maintain zero tolerance policy on law and order related issues and no one will be spared for taking law into their hands", said Adityanath while pointing a finger towards Samajwadi Party without taking its name over recent criminal incidents.

Narayanasamy said, Puducherry was part of the GST council and Union Territory had been given the status of a state.

Different indirect taxes like the central excise duty, central sales tax and service tax are to be merged with the C-GST, while S-GST will subsume state sales tax, VAT, luxury tax and entertainment tax.

Earlier this month, the Goa, Gujarat and Arunachal Pradesh assemblies also passed the GST Bill, 2017.
