Stalin has already said the GST should not be rolled out on July 1 as decided by the Centre.
With the DMK's demand not being taken up, Stalin led his MLAs out of the House after which the Speaker P Dhanapal went for a voice vote and the treasury benches backed the bill.
The bill was earlier moved on June 16 by Commercial Taxes Minister K C Veeramani.
In the statement of objects and reasons mentioned in the bill, he said the proposed legislation confers power upon the state government to levy GST on intra-state supply of goods and services.
"The proposed legislation will simplify and harmonise the indirect tax regime in the state. It is expected to reduce cost of production and inflation in the economy, thereby making the trade and industry more competitive," Veeramani had said while moving the bill.
