In the ongoing meeting of the GST Council, the opposition-ruled states are adamant on changing the revenue sharing rule in GST or increasing the compensation for five years. GST was introduced on July 1, 2017. Under this, there was a provision to give compensation for 5 years in lieu of losses to the states. This provision expires this month. States have adopted a strict approach to compensation. Apart from this, the rate of GST in cases like casino, online games and horse riding will be decided today.

Chhattisgarh Finance Minister Tribhuvan Dev Singh said that the existing rule of sharing the income from GST equally between the Center and the states should be changed. States should be given 70-80% of this. In a letter to Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, he said, “We are proposing to continue with the 14 per cent protected revenue provision.” If this is not continued, the rule of 50-50% for CGST and SGST should be changed to SGST 80-70 and CGST 20-30%.
