Chandigarh: The Haryana State Goods and Services Bill was passed unanimously by the state Assembly today.
A special one-day session had been convened for the passage of the Bill.
Finance Minister Capt Abhimanyu moved the bill which was supported by the two major opposition parties - the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) and the Congress.
The Bill was passed after an hour-long discussion.
Capt Abhimanyu said the Goods and Services Tax (GST) would be implemented in the entire country from 1 July, 2017, and would lead to a revolutionary change.
He said that a uniform tax regime would be implemented in the country through the GST after incorporating different taxes. The implementation of GST would prevent tax evasion, he added.
