GST Launch On June 30 With Special Midnight Session In Parliament

GST Launch On June 30 With Special Midnight Session In Parliament

NEW DELHI: Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that India’s largest tax reform since independence will launch the national tax on goods and services or GST at midnight on June 30

Mr. Jaitley said that President Pranab Mukherjee, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and two of his predecessors, Dr. Manmohan Singh SA Deve Gowda, will take place in the central hall of parliament for launch.

PM Modi speak at the special meeting of parliamentarians. All major ministers will be invited to the inauguration, said Jaitley, who has repeatedly stated that the launch of the GST would not be delayed, as requested by some states such as West Bengal.

“When it comes to reforms, it never blinks. If it blinked, it has derailed,” the finance minister said today.

The GST, India’s most ambitious fiscal reform, replaces strong tariffs Mosaic creates a single economic zone with common indirect taxes – something that the European Union or the United States can not presume.

Firms will be able to submit final delays over the first two months to enable them to adapt to a new online submission system. The strict GST deposit schedule will apply from September.

The government said the GST could add two percentage points to economic growth.
There will be four tax planks – 5, 12, 18 and 28 percent.

There have been concerns about the preparation of the GST system, the IT system that marks a technological leap for India: it is controlled through an IT backend that can process up to 5 billion invoices per month. The tax reform also poses a major challenge for collectors who must be trained and companies are aware of a levy that, according to experts, will force them to review business processes from front to back.

More than 6.5 million companies have already registered for GST, M. Jaitley said earlier this week, noting that more than four-fifths of those already registered are to pay old Indian trade taxes.

With business owners who use their personal tax numbers to comply with the GST, the government expects the Dodgers to have income tax on duty. Only about 3 percent of people in India pay income taxes.

The GST was proposed by the previous government led by Dr. Manmohan Singh’s Congress, but was blocked by political stalemate based on the proposal, including how tax revenue is collected and distributed between states and the center.

Donald Trump Jumps Into Worsening Dispute Between Qatar, Powerful Arab Bloc

Donald Trump Jumps Into Worsening Dispute Between Qatar, Powerful Arab Bloc

Administration officials said on Tuesday that the triumph president “did not take sides” in the conflict deepened among its main partners against terrorism in the Persian Gulf, despite a morning of Twitter presidential messages praising Saudi Arabia – and himself – for the dissemination of Qatar for the supposed financing of terrorism.

“During my recent trip to the Middle East, I said that there were radical ideology funds,” Trump tweeted. “The leaders emphasized Qatar – look”

“So it’s good to see that visit to Saudi Arabia with the king and the 50 country already pay,” he said. “They said they were going to adopt a hard line on the financing of extremism, and all the references indicated Qatar.”

On Monday, several Gulf neighbors Qatar – Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahrain – joined Egypt and smaller nations in separating diplomatic relations with Qatar, ordering their diplomats and their citizens to leave and endanger trade and Deeply intertwined routes.

The eruption appear to be motivated by regional conflicts from year to year, rather than disagreement or recent action. Following a visit in late May in which Trump, calling on the Arab and Muslim world to unite against the terrorist threat, praised Saudi Arabia as a regional leader.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, New Zealand, called for dialogue between neighbors. In the state service, spokeswoman Heather Nauert said that “we recognize that Qatar continues its efforts to stop the financing of terrorist groups, including the search for suspicious freezing financial assets, introducing stricter controls on their banking system. However, we recognize that there is much work to be done. ”

“Let’s get this social media thing going,” Nauert said in many Trump tweets, “because there are many other important things we have to discuss.”

A senior government official said: “We do not take sides If we party, we have left unity and cooperation.” Against terrorism. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the sensitive diplomatic issue.

Nauert and the senior official said the United States had been informed of Saudi Arabia’s intention to break ties shortly before Monday. However, “I do not think the US government has perfect clarity in what triggered this,” the official said. “We know there have been problems between them.”

The Pentagon, whose Middle East air operations are based at a massive air base in Qatar, where at least 10,000 members of US services are stationed, have opted for balance and reassurance.

“We recognize that there are different opinions in the area that allowed us to reach this point,” he said in a statement. “The United States and the coalition are grateful to Qatar for their continued support of our presence and continued commitment to regional security. We have no intention of changing our position in Qatar.”

According to the statement, the restrictions that Gulf neighbors Qatar impose on qatriais movements inside and outside the region “have no impact on our air operations”, including missions in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan.

Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), Chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, nodded in a Capitol corridor when he showed Trump’s Tweets on a journalist’s cell phone. “Each of these countries are important people for our country,” he said. “Our policy while the United States has been working with all of them.”
“We have a base on which we work is very important,” he said in Qatar.

During the visit last month in Saudi Arabia, where he delivered a speech to the leaders of the Muslim majority countries gathered for the occasion, Trump has personally met with Qatari emir Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad al-Thani. “We are friends, now we have been friends for a long time … Our relationship is very good,” Trump said at the beginning of the meeting behind closed doors. “One of the things we are going to discuss is the purchase [Qatar] of many beautiful military teams.”

After Maharashtra, farmer unrest rocks MP: 6 killed in firing, government ready for talks

After Maharashtra, farmer unrest rocks MP: 6 killed in firing, government ready for talks

As Maharashtra moved to contain an ongoing protest by farmers with a loan exemption, a similar protest in neighboring Madhya Pradesh took a violent turn Tuesday when at least six peasants were killed and eight others injured in two separate incidents In Mandsaur. Farmers have been looking for better prices for their products and exemption from lending. After demonstrators alleged that police shot them, Madhya Pradesh Interior Minister Bhupendra Singh, who had previously denied the allegation, later admitted that police may have fired in self-defense at one place. A judicial inquiry has been ordered and curfew imposed on Mandsaur.

Prime Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan announced a compensation of Rs 1 crore and a work to the close relatives of each dead and Rs five lakh and free treatment to the injured. An official said that of the six dead, five were killed when farmers attempted to raid Pipalia Mandi police station and resorted to fires. This attack followed the death of a farmer in the village of Bahi, not far from Pipalia Mandi. Madhya Pradesh The head of Patidar Samaj, Mahendra Patidar, said that the bodies of five killed in Pipalia Mandi will not be cremated until the Prime Minister arrives there. He identified the dead as Kanhaiyalal Patidar, Babloo Patidar, Chainram Patidar, Abhishek Patidar and Nathulal Patidar.

In Mandsaur and neighboring Neemuch district, protesters have set ablaze vehicles, blocked traffic and mistreated police officers while sporadic incidents have occurred in other parts of the state since June 1 when the Union Bharatiya Kisan (BKU) announced the agitation. During the last three days, protests intensified in the districts of Mandsaur, Neemuch, Ratlam and Indore. Demonstrators set fire to about a dozen vehicles and attacked the railroad tracks near Mandsaur on Monday night. On Tuesday, a group of peasants blocked traffic near Pipalia Mandi and threw stones at police and CRPF personnel. Security agencies launched tear gas shells to disperse the crowd. It was unclear who ordered the shot.

Calling it “a conspiracy,” Prime Minister Chouhan accused the Opposition Congress of instigating farmers. “I was sad, the administration had been told not to order the firing, but to talk to the farmers, but some criminal elements went into the protest,” he said. Chouhan appealed to farmers to remain calm. He said his government was ready for the talks. “Madhya Pradesh has been an island of peace,” he said. The Rashtriya Kisan Mazdoor Sangh (RKMS), a group formed by a former RSS worker, and Congress have asked for a bandh on Wednesday. The RKMS was formed by Shivkumar Sharma, who used to be a bearer of Bharatiya Kisan Sangh (BKS) affiliated with RSS, until he led a violent upheaval in 2012 in which a farmer died while firing in the Raisen district. Launched out of RSS and BKS, Sharma floated the RKMS.

The BKS and RKMS entered the ongoing protest only after it was extended. On Sunday, the Chief Minister called the BKS for talks in Ujjain. BKS officials announced that since Chouhan had assured them they would buy onions at 8 rupees per kilo and make half the cash payment to mandis, they were regaining agitation. The agitation of the farmers now observed is basically along two belts: Nashik-Ahmadnagar-Pune extending to Satara-Sangli-Kolhapur in Maharashtra, and Ratlam-Mandsaur-Neemuch in Madhya Pradesh. What is common to both belts – apart from being in the western part of the two states – is that they are home to relatively prosperous farmers, unlike their counterparts in the predominantly dry regions of Vidarbha / Marathwada or Bundelkhand.

The farmers of Ratlam-Mandsaur-Neemuch cultivate not only the common soybeans, wheat and chana cultivated in the rest of Madhya Pradesh, but also a range of spices of seeds and medicinal plants of meti (fenugreek), dhaniya (cilantro), Jeera Comino) and ajwain (caraway) to garlic, isabgol (psyllium), white musli and ashwagandha. The same is true of Western Maharashtra farmers who have grown grapes, onions and pomegranates, as well as marketing dairy products by investing in high-yield dairy holstein-fries cows.
