State Wise List of Ratification of GST Bill

By | September 12, 2016

The Goods and Services Tax Bill or GST Bill (Constitutional Bill) has received president asset on 8th September. At that time 18 states had consented for GST. Now 21 states have ratified GST Bill.

The introduction of Goods and Services Tax (GST) would be a significant step in the reform of indirect taxation in India. Amalgamating several Central and State taxes into a single tax would mitigate cascading or double taxation, facilitating a common national market. The simplicity of the tax should lead to easier administration and enforcement. From the consumer point of view, the biggest advantage would be in terms of a reduction in the overall tax burden on goods, which is currently estimated at 25%-30%, free movement of goods from one state to another without stopping at state borders for hours for payment of state tax or entry tax and reduction in paperwork to a large extent.
