Gujarat Governor O P Kohli on Monday gave his assent to the state GST Bill and two other related legislations, said officials. These three bills were passed by the Assembly during a special session convened last month to pave the way for implementation of Goods and Services Tax (GST) in the state.
"The governor today gave his assent to all the three bills related to GST," said a senior official of the state Legislative and Parliamentary Affairs Department. During the day-long session on May 9, the Assembly had passed Gujarat GST Bill, Gujarat Value-Added Tax (Amendment) Bill and Gujarat Local Authorities Laws (Amendment) Bill.
On April 6, Parliament had passed four legislations to pave the way for nation-wide roll-out of the new indirect taxregime from July 1.
