The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, thanked Wednesday the leaders and members of all the parties on the occasion of passage of the GST (Goods and Services Tax) Bill in the Rajya Sabha.
GST Bill (वस्तु एवं सेवा कर विधेयक) aims to implement a national Value added Tax in India.
Calling GST as the best example of cooperative federalism, the Prime Minister in a series of tweets said that this reform will promote Make in India project, help exports and thus boost employment while providing enhanced revenue.
“On this truly historic occasion of the passage of the GST Bill in the Rajya Sabha, I thank the leaders and members of all parties,” Modi said. “Our MPs must be congratulated for their path breaking decision to give India an indirect tax system for the 21st century.”
We will continue to work with all parties and states to introduce a system that benefits all Indians and promotes a vibrant and unified national market, Modi said.
