For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Editorial | Updated: January 19 2017 12:01 am Top News The Narendra Modi government has done well to thrash out a deal with states on the contentious issue of sharing of administrative powers over the Goods and Services Tax (GST) States had been insisting on control over assessees with an annual turnover of up to Rs 150 crore The Modi government was initially not willing to extend that leeway But with states unwilling to concede ground it had become a sticking point that threatened to derail the plans to implement the ambitious indirect tax reform from April 1 In a welcome step the Centre has now agreed to an arrangement where small taxpayers under the GST will be divided between the states and the Centre in the proportion of 90:10 for the purpose of audit and scrutiny that would be done on a random basis Administrative control over all taxpayers falling above the Rs 15 crore turnover threshold will be shared again randomly on a 50:50 basis Finance Minister Arun Jaitley moreover has clarified that no assessee would be subject to oversight of both the Centre and states That should please industry and trade which was dreading the prospect of dual control The other crucial demand of the states that the Modi government has conceded relates to the power to tax economic activity in the high seas within 12 nautical miles of India’s territorial waters The coastal states were demanding the right to do this under the integrated GST law By showing flexibility and not making either of the two issues a matter of prestige the Centre has hopefully paved the way for a rollout of the GST from July 1 While that may be later than the original date of April 1 this kind of delay is well within accepted limits It is a fact that the GST cannot be a reality without getting states on board And the Centre — more so in the context of collateral damage to the economy from demonetisation and lowering of growth forecasts by agencies the IMF being the latest — cannot afford to get it wrong on the GST The onus is on the Modi government to be persistent and yet display a spirit of accommodation But there is still unfinished work ahead The GST Council has to finalise the draft laws relating to the GST which then have to be introduced in the upcoming budget session of Parliament Even more challenging is deciding on the nitty-gritty of tax rates and exemptions applicable on different commodities — which is again the job of the council that has both the Union finance minister and his state-level counterparts — and equally important putting in place a robust GST network IT backbone for the smooth functioning of the new tax regime Getting all these pieces right within an acceptable time period will be the test for the Modi government post-demonetisation For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Bashaarat Masood | Srinagar | Published: July 22 2016

featuring Ghulam Ali that he himself is a big fan of the Pakistani ghazal maestro but the performance at a time when tensions at the border continue to rise could not be allowed Having received two letters from the Shiv Sena protesting the scheduled concert one from the local unit of the party at the venue Shanmukhananda Hall and another from the Chitrapat Sena the party’s film industry union

Sena’s demand for cancellation of the concert on October 6 “It came in the form of a letter hand delivered at the office at Shanmukhananda Hall and they called me up” recounted Roy who immediately went to the venue to take a look at the letter The manager at Shanmukhananda Hall added that the Chitrapat Sena sent a similar letter on Wednesday “The first one was signed by Aadesh Bandekar while the one on October 7 was sent by Mangesh Satamkar” said a manager at Shanmukhananda Roy got in touch with Sena workers who arranged for him to meet Thackeray at the mayor’s office “We met at 730pm and Uddhavji explained to me that they don’t have a problem with the artiste He also admitted to being a huge fan of Ghulam Ali saheb but said he cannot allow a Pakistani talent to perform in the state as the tension between the two countries is high” said Roy After a round of discussion the concert in Mumbai was called off and a decision to cancel the Pune show scheduled for October 10 was also taken

everyone else” said Roy “My government is willing to give full protection to Ali’s concert in Mumbai The show must go on It is unfortunate to drag a world-class renowned ghazal singer into Indo-Pakistan politics” Fadnavis had said The organisers on their part did not reach out to the authorities “The safety of 2700 people who were to attend the show was at stake If even one person gets injured the responsibility would be mine” said Roy Panache Media began to organise the ghazal maestro’s shows in India in 2012 Roy said Ali hasn’t faced any such protest or calls for cancellation The

registered FIRs only in those instances where it has allegedly found major falsifications fraud or forgery Related News Several top industrial groups are set to get a reprieve in the coal blocks allotment case with the Central Vigilance Commission likely to back the CBI in its bid to close as many as 22 preliminary enquiries registered against them The Supreme Court had on March 29 given the CVC four weeks’ time to examine a bunch of coal blocks allotment cases the investigating agency was inclined to close and it now transpires the files include allotments made to several large industrial houses They include Tata Power Company (Tubed block in Jharkhand ); Adani Power Ltd (Lohara West and Extension in Maharashtra); Jindal Photo Ltd (Mandakini block in Orissa); GMR Energy Ltd (Rampia in Orissa); Bhushan Steel and Strips Ltd (Urtan block in Madhya Pradesh); and Ispat Industries Ltd (Behraband North Extension in Madhya Pradesh) Officials in the two agencies pointed out that what the apex court described as “difference of opinion’’ among CBI officers in these cases was in fact an instance of a junior inquiry officer of the level of superintendent of police taking an “extreme view’’ of wanting to register FIRs against all companies even for a minor misrepresentation of figures or assets Senior officers including director Ranjit Sinha were not in agreement though The CBI has so far registered FIRs only in those instances where it has allegedly found major falsifications fraud or forgery While CBI officials said that the opinion of their junior legal experts was sought before a final recommendation of closure was given in each case CVC officials said a scrutiny of CBI files has shown a clear pattern of the inquiry officers’ view being countered by senior officers The CVC team has held consultations on these cases and has also been given a presentation on the complex process of allotting coal blocks Following directions from the apex court the CBI has handed over copies of the 22 case files containing notings of key officials to the CVC and the corruption watchdog is expected to file its report early next month Other companies which are believed to figure on the CBI’s closure list include Rashmi Cements Ltd (Andal East block West Bengal); Binani Cements Ltd (Nimbri Chandawata Lignite block Rajasthan); Adhunik Thermal Energy Ltd (Ganeshpur
