Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Friday made it clear that without removing the authority of any state, the central government will certainly give the share of GST linked states.

The minister of finance said this while introducing the Taxation and Other Laws (Amendment and Waiver of Certain Provisions) Bill 2020 in Lok Sabha. However, thanks to the comments of BJP members, including Union Minister of State for Finance Anurag Thakur, members of opposition parties created tons of noise within the House thanks to which the proceedings had to be adjourned fourfold.
‘We are removing the proper of a state’ may be a misunderstanding

Earlier, members of opposition parties like Congress, Trinamool Congress, etc. Questioned the introduction of the bill and said that it’s an effort to interfere with the jurisdiction of the states. The opposition members demanded the monies owed to the states’ share under the products and Services Tax (GST). He also questioned the PM Cares Fund and suggested to merge it with the Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund.

Finance Minister Sitharaman said, ‘It may be a misconception that we are removing the authority of a state. I would like to clarify that we aren’t running from responsibility. He said that this bill is said to payment of tax, tax filing, and filing of returns and that we aren’t doing anything that violates the GST Council. The minister of finance said that the topic of payment of tax, tax filing, and filing of returns comes under the purview of the Central Government.
Referring to the topic of states’ share within the GST, Sitharaman said, ‘We will give the cash we’ve to offer to the states’. He said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been the Chief Minister before, he knows what are the issues of the states. We get guidance during this regard from the Prime Minister. Sitharaman said that he never said that the states wouldn’t pay.

Significantly, the Taxation and Other Laws (Amendment and Waiver of Certain Provisions) Bill proposes various sorts of compliance relief for taxpayers, including the extension of your time period for submission of returns, linking of Aadhaar with PAN. The Taxation and Other Laws (Amendment and Waiver of Certain Provisions) Ordinance was enacted in March 2020.

What is the statement of opposition parties?

Sitharaman also said that the ‘controversy-to-trust scheme’ isn’t an amnesty scheme. Any dishonest tax evader won’t get any benefit during this. This is often an answer plan. Earlier, Congress members Shashi Tharoor, Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary, and Manish Tiwari and Saugata Roy of Trinamool Congress opposed the introduction of the bill. Chaudhary said that while the amendment is being done, its reason should even be clear.

Referring to the PM Cares Fund, he said that the govt should tell who is taking advantage of it. Tiwari said that this bill will change the essential character of the imprisonment law, so we’ll oppose it. He said that it might be appropriate for the PM Cares Fund to be made through law and not through a trust. Saugata Rai of the Trinamool Congress said that when the Prime Minister is that the National Relief Fund then what’s the necessity of PM Cares Fund. The quantity of PM Cares Fund should be transferred to the Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund.
