The Rajya Sabha on Wednesday passed the 122nd Constitutional Amendment Bill, thereby empowering the Centre and the state legislatures to have concurrent powers to make laws on GST. The GST will have two components keeping in mind the federal structure of India: the Central GST (CGST) and the State GST (SGST). The amendment would eliminate multiple taxes on firms and help ease of doing business. However, the new tax regime would have different impact on different sectors. Overall, it is expected to have a positive impact on the economic development of India. The Government plans to roll out GST from 1st April, 2017.
