New Delhi: Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Monday tabled the four legislations for implementation of the goods and services tax in the Lok Sabha.The Union Cabinet has already cleared the four supplementary GST legislations — CGST, IGST, UTGST and Compensation Law — for introduction and passage in the ongoing session of Parliament.
The government proposes to launch GST from July 1.
Last week Jaitley had emphasised the urgency to pass the GST laws during the current session of Parliament, saying the Centre and the states will otherwise lose their right to collect indirect taxes after September 15.
The government is keen to bring in GST from July 1, and other aspects like bringing petroleum and land under its ambit will be considered after the first year of implementation of the new indirect tax, he had said in the Rajya Sabha.
He had said the GST Constitutional Amendment Bill did not provide for extension of the deadline beyond September 15 this year.
