Arun Jaitley Presents GST Bills,Opposition Objects To a Mid-night Listing…



Finance Minister Arun Jaitley presented four bills for Parliament’s approval-today as the government races to meet a July 1 deadline to implement the mega reform Goods and Services Tax.

The four GST related bills were introduced in the lok Sabha or lower house amid protests by opposition parties who said they were sprung upon them without being listed in the day’s agenda.

Speaker Sumitra Mahajan dismissed the opposition’s objections, pointing out that copies of the draft bills were sent to all members of the Lok Sabha on Saturday morning and they had enough time to go through them before these were presented today for a discussion and the house’s sign-off.
