Govt in a tight spot on RGST

ISLAMABAD: The government is known to be facing great difficulties in manipulating the GST (general sales tax) reforms Bill 2010, according to its whims. The 3-day meeting of the standing committee for finance was scheduled to be convened on 22 Nov 2010, by chairman Senator Ahmad Ali and would review the GST-Reforms Bill 2010 and prepare committee’s recommendations in NA session commencing on 23rd Nov, where its approval would also be sought.
Sources have informed that there was a possibility of government enjoying the support of only four committee members out of a total of 13, in asserting its agenda.
The remaining nine, which include MQM, PML-Q, JUI-(F), PML-N and JI members, arrayed against the Bill, are likely to give quite a tough time to government’s aspirations regarding GST reforms.
However, not sitting idle, the government has also hastened its ministerial efforts to win over the reservations and grievances of its coalition partners, ANP, MQM and JUI, regarding the controversial Bill. -Online
