Kejriwal writes to PM to consider more viable options for GST

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, appealing to him to consider more legally viable options for providing Goods and Services Tax (GST) dues to the states to help them tide over the financial crisis during the Covid-19 pandemic.

In the letter, Kejriwal mentioned that two options that are given by the Union Finance Ministry which require the states to borrow loans and then meet the repayment liabilities, will put an onerous burden on the states. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor wrote the letter following deliberations on the options given by the central government to the states at the 41st GST Council meet on August 27.
