Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee today said the Government proposes to introduce the Constitution Amendment Bill in the current session to pave the way for introduction of the long-awaited Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime. “I propose to introduce the constitution amendment bill in this session of Parliament,” Mukherjee said in his Budget speech 2011-12.

The government originally planned to roll out GST from April 1 last year but a consensus could not be reached on the introduction of the Bill, which needs to be passed by two-third majority in both the Houses of Parliament.

In its latest GST constitution amendment draft — the third of so far — the Centre has proposed to give powers to Parliament for constituting the GST council.
