High Court decision will not modify GST system: Finance Ministry


The Supreme Court decision involves no adjustments of ‘a way’ to the working of the GST system and the institutional instrument for its activity, the Finance Ministry declared on Thursday, even as certain States invited the choice for obviously articulating and shielding their privileges.

Naming the GST Council ‘the best illustration of cooperative and agreeable federalism’, the Finance Ministry said that the pinnacle court had ‘just explained’ on its practical component in its perceptions.
“This judgment doesn’t in any capacity set down anything new to the extent that the GST institutional component is concerned, makes little difference to the manner in which GST has been working in India, nor sets down anything generally unique to the current structure of GST,” it noted, trying to control tension about the fate of the roundabout assessment framework presented on July 1, 2017.

The Council was a cooperative institutional component, and the Center and States follow proposals are shown up at with agreement, the service said, focusing on that there has been just ‘a singular occurrence’ where a choice required casting a ballot.

“Indeed, even for this situation, the disagreeing States executed the choice of GST Council,” the service said in an explanation, adding that it would survey the 153-page judgment exhaustively. “In any remaining examples, which run into in excess of 1,000, the choices have been taken with agreement,” it added.
