Schism in GST Council out in the open
Posted on Tuesday 15th June, 2021 by Ankit
GST Council, which used to adopt the route of consensual decision-making, appears to be a divided house now. Exposing the schism in the Centre-state body, two state finance ministers West Bengal’s Amit Mitra and Punjab’s Manpreet Singh Badal have made statements sharply criticising the council’s way of functioning. The Coucil, which met last Saturday, announced temporary tax cuts for a clutch of Covid-19 items but retained the rate for vaccines at 5%.
