PM Narendra Modi in his recent response to ET’s questions had the following view on GST:
What is the prime minister’s, the politician’s, assessment regarding the Congress stance on the issue of the goods and services tax? Do you have any deadlines for GST?
“In our history, I do not think there has been any law which has been debated as extensively and as long and at as many levels as the GST Bill. The states and especially the consuming states now understand the benefits of GST. Most of the states have clearly understood that GST will benefit the poor through buoyancy of revenue, enabling better services to them. The poorest states will benefit even more.
