The Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council failed to reach a consensus on critical issues, including the laws that need to be passed in the winter session in order to stick to the April 1, 2017 rollout date set by the Centre. With the pending legislations, including the draft model GST law, as well as the contentious issue of dual administrative control over assesses between the Centre and the States remaining unresolved, the GST Council would now meet on December 11 and 12. While the effect of demonetization on the economy and on the states is outside the purview of the GST Council, Mr. Jaitley said that, on the behest of the state representatives, he wrapped up the Council meeting early and allowed the states to voice their grievances on demonetization. Some of the states, the minister said, suggested an increase in the Fiscal Responsibility and Budget Management targets while others called for a relaxation of the ways and means limits. “Our target is still April 1, and our options are anyway limited,” Mr. Jaitley said. “The earliest we can bring it in is April 1 and the latest is September 16, which is five months and 15 days later.” “I am happy that all the states raised their voices on demonetization,”
