FM proposed GST Council to wait for a year before converging GST Slabs

No Comments

As per the recent tweet of CNBC TV 18, FM Nirmala Sitharaman tells that, she has proposed that the GST Council Do rate revisions only once a year, also suggests the council wait for a year before converging GST slabs. Further, I have clearly laid this thought at the GST Council’s table saying that please, can we do this exercise just once in a year? Instead of doing it every 3 months. You may collect all the demands and do the due process and wait for 1 year“.

Further more, I have also requested to GST Council until the whole thing settles down, we shouldn’t be in a rush to do a 2nd set of rationalization, rate reduction, or even reducing the 5 rates to two or three. So, I will wait for at least a year, when you are able to get a picture.
