Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will meet state ministers on Tuesday to put pressure on the opposition Congress party to back a long-delayed sales tax reform whose chances have again been thrown into doubt by a parliamentary standoff. The proposed tax reform, the biggest since India’s independence from Britain in 1947, seeks to replace a slew of taxes and levies in its 29 states, transforming the nation of 1.3 billion people into a customs union.
The current monsoon session of parliament could be the best chance for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government to adopt a landmark Goods and Services Tax (GST) before campaigning hots up for state elections next year.
“The meeting will discuss all pending issues on GST,”
