GST RO(W)AD AHEAD - Episode 1 Both the Houses of Indian Parliament have finally passed the GST Bill with certain amendments. But, interestingly, even as Clause 18 with respect to 1% additional tax on inter-state trade was deleted, 92B has been retained, and it cannot be without a purpose? What could be that? Secondly, Entry 52 is gone in this Constitutional Amendment Bill but the powers of the local bodies like Municipalities and Panchayat Bodies have not been altered, which means bad news for Mumbaikars as OCTROI is not going to go!! There are many more such interesting points which have come out of the debate - GST RO(W)AD AHEAD organised by TIOL TUBE. The four distinguished experts who participated in this debate are Mr Mohan Parasaran, Former Solicitor General of India; Mr Sujit Ghosh, National Head, Advaita Legal, Mr S Dutt Majumder, Former Chairman, CBEC and Mr Sridhar Raman, Sr VP, Hindustan Coca Cola Beverages Pvt Ltd.
