(a) and (b) : Article 246 A of the Constitution gives equal powers to both Centre and States to make laws with respect to Goods and Services Tax (GST). GST Council has been constituted under Article 279A of the Constitution of India, entrusted with the task to make recommendations to the Union of India and the States on all matters related to GST. Review of GST laws and procedures, rates and exemptions are deliberated upon by the GST Council from time-to-time based on emerging needs and situations and on requests received from various States and other stake holders and the recommendations are made by GST council for amendments in GST laws, procedures, rates and exemptions, if required. Further, the Council has taken several measures from time to time to augment revenue, including rationalization of GST rates and several procedural and systems changes, which also benefit States.

(c) : GST rates are prescribed on the recommendation of the GST Council in terms of the relevant provisions of the Constitution and apply uniformly to all states. At present, there is no such proposal before the Council.
