Goods and Service Tax Registration
For those of you who were expecting decisions from the GST Council facilitating early implementation of GST, there is disappointment in that the impasse on Dual Control besides other issues like Jurisdiction over Territorial Waters, Split between SGST and CGST of the agreed rate structure continues.
Administration of IGST is also an issue that is being deliberated upon.
The GST Council meets next on 16th January, 2017 to decide on the issues and if there is consensus, the Central Legislations CGST, IGST and GST Compensation Law can be taken up in the Budget Session of the Parliament.
The divergence of views and constructive deliberation for convergence augurs well for fiscal federalism though the implementation of GST gets delayed.
