GST council recommendations not binding on Center, States but have persuasive value: SC- Dinamani


The Supreme Court on Thursday said the recommendations of the GST Council would not restrict the federal and state governments.

The Gujarat High Court quashed the unified GST on maritime goods as unconstitutional. The Central Government appealed to the Supreme Court against this.

The session, chaired by Supreme Court Judge DY Chandrasooty, which heard the case, said, “As India operates on a federal basis, the recommendations of the GST Council have only credible value.

Not all of the GST Council’s recommendations restrict the federal and state governments. Federal and state governments have equal power to legislate on the GST issue. The GST Council must work in concert to reach a settlement between the Central and State Governments. “

Further, the Supreme Court said that the GST Council was the result of joint consultations between the Central and State Governments and that it was not mandatory for only one of the federal bodies to play an additional role.
