NC & Congress need not blame coalition Govt. for extending GST to J&K
5/19/2017 11:03:39 PM
The PDP-BJP coalition Government has no intention of violating the Artcile 370 that gives the state a special status within the Union Of India.In order to maintain the original spirit of the Article 370 the state Government has decided not to allow GST bill which was passed by the Parliament,to be applicable in Jammu and Kashmir without the state Legislature giving its approval.This decision was taken after the Union Finance Minister,Arun Jaitley convinced the state Government that once the GST law was made applicable it would benefit the state.And the state Finance Minister, Haseeb Drabu too was convinced and announced that since the GST regime was bound the give fi nancial benefit the state Legislature will introduce the GST bill with some changes To implement the Goods and Services Tax (GST), the Finance Minister Haseeb Drabu has said that state government will introduce the GST bill in next 30 days in the state legislature.Jammu and Kashmir state will go into the GST regime but because the state has a special constitutional position, the Government will try and make some changes,
Drabu has said that Jammu and Kashmir state draws power to tax from section 5 of its constitution whereas all other states of India draw their powers from Article 246 of constitution of India."So some changes have to be made. We will try and introduce the GST bill in coming 30 days in the state legislature. Only after it is passed by the state legislature, shall we enact it," he said, adding J&K was mulling to bring real estate under the GST.The union Finance Minister also said the common people would have many benefits of the GST because it would decrease the cascading effect of taxes. "And importing states like J&K will have huge benefit. As per our estimate, we will have Rs 1500 to 2000 crore profit in tax revenue. Prices will go down for common people in coming three years," he said. Drabu said the GST is perhaps India's largest and most significant tax reform. "It is change in tax regime itself. And today to my mind this is the most important meeting because there is lot of public interest in it, like what taxes you have on salt, on cigarettes, on ships, so it affects the general public. So it is a very important meeting and perhaps it is towards the concluding part of the GST council," he said
Even if the state Government makes some changes in the GST regime the essence of the Indian law will remain in tact. Why should then the BJP clamour for abrogation of Article 370? It should not because the BJP ear ns wrath from people in Kashmir and whenever the state wants any India law to be made applicable to the state of Jammu and Kashmir,it has to seek approval from the state legislature.,This way several hundred central laws have been made applicable to Jammu and Kashmir through approval from the state legislature.The Congress and the National Conference may voice criticism of the decision of the Finance Minister Drabu but the two parties should know it that whenever they were in power several hundred laws,adopted by the parliament were extended to the state of Jammu and Kashmir.This way more than Congress National Conference has been responsible for the erosion of the original spirit of Article 370.
