GST Council’s 21st meet in Hyderabad on Sept 9

Telangana government is likely to raise the issue of tax concession for government projects, besides other subjects such as concession for Beedi industry and granite.

The GST Council will meet on September 9 in Hyderabad, a senior official in Telangana government told PTI. This will be the 21st meeting of the Council since it was formed in September last year.

“The meeting will be held in Hyderabad. Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will be heading the meeting. The agenda will be fixed soon,” the official was quoted as saying.

Telangana government is likely to raise the issue of tax concession for government projects, besides other subjects such as concession for Beedi industry and granite, he quipped.

The all powerful GST Council, chaired by Jaitley and having state finance ministers as members, has ironed out various contentious issues so far.

Notably, out of 2.16 lakh VAT registrations in the state, as many as 1.96 lakh vendors have enrolled under the new tax regime, the official said.
