A slew of key decision are likely to be taken at the 2-day conference, which will conclude on Wednesday.
A 2-day conference of the GST Council began in Chandigarh on Tuesday, and is being chaired by Union finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman. Also present for the meeting are Minister of State for Finance, Pankaj Chaudhary, finance ministers from states and Union territories, and senior officers from the central government and states, the finance ministry said.
This is the committee’s first meeting this year, and the first in six months; the previous meeting took place at the Vigyan Bhavan in New Delhi on December 31 last year.
Also, it comes just days before the Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime, which was rolled out on July 1, 2017, completes five years.
