Revenue Secretary Hasmukh Adhia on Monday clarified that the Goods and Service Tax (GST) will be implemented on time and the work procedure is ahead of the schedule.
"We are so far ahead of time schedule in implementing GST," Adhia said.
"We are fully geared up for April 1, 2017, deadline for GST roll out," he added.
The Constitution (122nd Amendment) Bill for GST was passed by the Lok Sabha, with 443 members present in the House voting in favour of the legislation. The deadline for the rollout of the GST is April 1, 2017.
At least 50 per cent of the states have to pass what is technically the Constitution (One Hundred and Twenty Second Amendment) Bill, 2014, for the next steps of legislative action to follow, to ultimately introduce a pan-India Goods and Services Tax regime.
