Cabinet nod:Moth-eaten GST Bill is better than no GST at all, kudos to FM Jaitley

The Goods and Services Tax is within grasping distance for the Modi government with centre and states close to agreement. It would be the ideal bill, but a moth-eaten bill is better than no bill at all #Federalism #CST #Constitutional Amendment #GST Bill Arun Jaitley #Petro-Products
