CHANDIGARH: Haryana Finance Minister Captain Abhimanyu today said the state government will get the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill passed in the upcoming Monsoon Session of the legislative Assembly commencing on August 26.

He also termed the passage of the Bill in Parliament as a revolutionary step and said that GST would be implemented by the Centre from April, 2017.

The economic world feels that the Bill should be passed quickly so that similar tax system could be enforced in the states too, Abhimanyu said.

To a question, he said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had launched the 'Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao' programme from Panipat.

With the success of the programme, the sex ratio has jumped over 900 from 850 in the state.

The Finance Minister said women police stations had been set up in every district of the state to ensure safety of women. Concrete steps were also being taken for the recruitment of women in the police force, he added.
