Gujarat Assembly ratifies goods and services tax Bill

The Gujarat Legislative Assembly ratified the Constitution Amendment Bill on Goods and Service Tax ( GST) unopposed on the last day of monsoon session on Tuesday in the absence of Congress legislators, who were suspended for creating ruckus in the Assembly. “ The Bill has been ratified unopposed by Gujarat Assembly,” Speaker Ramanlal Vora said in the House, after the Bill was passed by voice vote by Bhartiya Janata Party legislators.

Passed by Parliament recently, the Bill needs to be ratified by at least 15 state legislatures.
