NEW DELHI, July 24 - Government is likely to list the much-delayed GST Bill for discussion in the Rajya Sabha this week after Finance Minister Arun Jaitley meets State finance ministers on Tuesday.
Jaitley, who has been engaged in back-channel negotiations with Congress leaders to get the main Opposition party on board, will discuss proposed amendments to the GST legislation passed by the Lok Sabha at the meeting of the empowered committee of State finance ministers.
The meeting may take up changes as demanded by the Congress in the constitutional amendment Bill, including one for scrapping of one per cent additional tax in hands of the States, official sources said.
The Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill will be listed for discussion in the Rajya Sabha after taking on board views of the States. � PTI
