Nagaland Assembly ratifies GST

The Nagaland Legislative Assembly on Friday ratified the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Constitution Amendment Bill.

The bill was endorsed by the House by a voice vote following a brief discussion.

Introducing the bill, Minister for Parliamentary Affairs said the revenue of the state would go up as would be checked due to transparency and broadening of tax base.

"A purely consuming state like Nagaland will benefit even more since is based on the destination principle," he said, adding, tax administration would improve since most of the activity would be online.
