Monsoon session from July 18, government confident of GST passage

NEW DELHI (TIP): The government on Wednesday asserted it has “enough” support for passage of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill in the monsoon session of Parliament that will commence from July 18 till August 12.

After a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs chaired by home minister Rajnath Singh that recommended the schedule for the session, parliamentary affairs minister M Venkaiah Naidu told reporters that the session could also be extended or curtailed by two-three days depending on requirement.

The session will have 20 working days for now. Naidu said, “We have a wider support and we have enough numbers for GST but we would like to have all parties on board because it will have an effect on states.”
