The local government of the constitutional amendment. So far, the GST bill has been approved by more than 50% of the local councils.

The next step for the GST bill will seek the approval of Indian President Mukherjee.

Once the 122nd Constitutional Amendment (GST Act) is approved by the President of India, it will be officially promulgated into law. In the next step, the Indian government will organize a GST committee composed of central and local representatives within a week. 

The central government is responsible for completing the legal content of CGST (CentralGoods and Service Tax) and IGST (InterstateGoods and Service Tax) within two months, and each state government will also complete its own SGST (StateGoods and Service Tax) legal content. It is reported that the Indian tax authorities are also striving to complete preparations in February next year.



The time node set by the Indian government is April 1, 2017, which is the time when GST officially replaces the existing complex indirect tax system at the central and local levels. But the remaining work is still more difficult: specific GST legal content needs to be formulated, detailed operating rules need to be formulated. 

The central and local GST tax rates also need to be formulated. 

The GST Council will be composed of one-third of the central representative and two-thirds of the local representatives. The committee will be responsible for the formulation of the above-mentioned details.
