Future of GST Bill For most of us the GST Bill is on ventilator. Such an inference was drawn after the Union Finance Minister, Mr Arun Jaitely expressed his frustration over the non-passage of the Bill during the Winter Session in the Rajya Sabha. While interacting with the industry forums Mr Jaitley also hinted at exploring an alternative if the Bill was not passed. What could be such an alternative?
