HYDERABAD: The state government, while insisting the Centre that GST on most of the goods should be between 5 and 12 per cent, will put five demands before GST Council meeting on June 3.
“Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitlely is positive and considering all the issues. So far, voting was not conducted in any GST Council meeting, though the States have 66 pc and Centre 33 pc say in the GST Council,” Rajender explained.
The demands are as follows:
GST should not give scope for tax evasion. The taxation system should be practical
The grievances of the traders should be addressed
GST should be grounded perfectly, even if implementation is delayed by one month
There are two taxes on spectacles. One tax on frame and another rate of tax on glasses When the end product is spectacles, the tax should be single
The taxation should be less for the goods used by the common man
