GST to rollout on July 1

BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty open higher

The GST Council will meet again on June 30, the eve of the launch, Jaitley said.

Once fully up and running, the GST would require companies to file a complete return of their sales invoices by the 10th of the following month, with a second of their purchase invoices by the 15th.

With less than a fortnight for roll out of Goods and Services Tax (GST), home buyers should brace themselves for a shock as flats nearing completion will now attract a tax of 12% as against the present service tax of 4.5%.

The GST Council has also fixed a tax rate of 18 percent for hotels which charged between Rs 2,500 and Rs 7,500 per night and 28 percent for hotels which charge Rs 7,500 and above.

"GST on restaurants in these hotels will be at par with other air-conditioned restaurants (18%)", news agency ANI quoted the finance minister as saying.

The Council made a decision to tax lotteries in two segments, with State-run ones attracting 12 per cent GST and the State- authorised 28 per cent.

"The official launch of the GST will take place on the midnight of June 30 and July 1 at a function in Delhi", Jaitley added.

While speaking the Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said "Further consultation on e-way bills, till then an alternative or transient rule will prevail".


State's Finance Minister Malaiyya said, that the tax rate of various commodities should be reduced.

"Businesses should not rush for migration". New businesses too need not rush.

The Council also decided that for the first two months, tax will be payable based on a simple return (form GSTR-3B) containing summary of outward supplies which will be submitted before 20th of the succeeding month. However, Uttarakhand will have it at Rs 75 lakh.

The GST is scheduled to be rolled out from July 1.

As per the draft, it is GSTN that would generate e-way e-way bills valid for 1-15 days, depending on distance to be travelled - one day for 100 km and 15 days for more than 1,000 km transit.

"Barring Uttarakhand and Jammu and Kashmir, it was decided to make the composition limit at Rs 50 lakh for the other north-eastern states and hill state of Himachal Pradesh", Jaitley said. Tamil Nadu has their meeting tomorrow.

"Even in the All Party Meeting, the State Government failed to come up with its proposal to deal with this issue and had no answers to provide".
