The Supreme Court today declared that the GST Council’s recommendations are not binding on the federal government and states. It just has persuasion power.
A court led by Justice DY Chandrachud ruled that the federal government and states had concurrent legislative powers over the Goods and Services Tax (GST). As a result, the GST council must work together to reach a workable settlement between the Centre and the States, according to the Supreme Court.
“GST council recommendations are the result of a collaborative process. It is not necessary for one of the federal subdivisions to always have a larger proportion “Read by Justice Chandrachud.
