“The report of our submissions will be handed over to Hon’ble FM, Nirmala Sitharaman Ji in a day or two & the matter will be presented in the next GST Council Meeting. Thank all members for their cooperation & Hon’ble FM for giving us this task,”he said.
When asked, Sangma said that all the decisions and recommendations made have been based on existing laws that are in place and existing rulings from the Supreme Court.
“We also looked at the aspect of the growth of different sectors, we also looked at the aspect of ensuring that the entrepreneurs and the businesses all these aspects also will be considered as I have said the GoM have to take a consistent view and based on that we have submitted the report.”
