17 17 Constitutional Amendment Bill (CAB) Presently, the centre can impose taxes on manufactured goods and services; While states can only tax sales of goods. At present, the States do not have the power to levy taxes on services. The CAB was tabled before the Parliament of India on 22 March 2011 by the Finance Minister of India. The CAB needs to be passed by a 2/3rd majority in both Houses of Parliament. Subsequently it needs to be ratified by at least 50% of the state legislative assemblies before it can legally amend the present provisions of the Constitution. After ratification of the CAB, the center and state assemblies will have to pass the GST legislation. © Copyright Raghav Bajaj

Deletion of powers to levy taxes that are to be subsumed by the GST, and 3. Empowering the finance ministries to collectively determine the design of GST 18© Copyright Raghav Bajaj
