With several states suggesting chang-es in the model GST and compen-sation laws, the GST Council meeting scheduled for November 25 has been postponed to December 2-3. The officers’ committee of both the Centre and states, however, will meet on November 25 to final-ise the three draft legislations — CGST, IGST and compensation law. These will be placed in public domain for stakeholders’ com-ments. The Centre proposes to introduce these legislations as money bills to ensure they are not stuck in the Rajya Sabha where the ruling NDA does not have a majority. Sources said that since the legal changes in the draft laws would take some time, it was decided to postpone the November 25 meet-ing of the all-powerful GST Council. The of-ficers committee would not discuss the issue of cross empowerment to avoid dual control as it would be decided at the ministerial level.
