In Chhattisgarh, a special one day session of the State Assembly will be held today to ratify the Constitution Amendment Bill on Goods and Services Tax, GST. Chief minister Raman Singh has said, Chhattisgarh has no objection to GST provided the Centre's compensation, on loss due to phasing-out of Central Sales Tax, is given on time. The bill is likely to be ratified by the Assembly unanimously as the Opposition Congress has already pledged its support to the bill.

Singh Dev has said, the party will see to it that the interests of Chattisgarh are not compromised by the framework of this Bill. Meanwhile, BJP's senior MLA Shivratan Sharma yesterday said, not just people but also the industries including steel, will benefit from the single integrated indirect tax regime.
Gujarat Assembly is also all set to ratify the Constitution Amendment Bill on GST during its two-day special session beginning from today. According to sources, the bill will be tabled in the house on the first day while discussion and voting if necessary will take place on the second day.
