"The GST Council discussed the change in ownership structure of GSTN".

The GST Council on Friday chose to roll out in six months a new method of filing monthly returns and to take over ownership of the GST Network (GSTN), even as it deferred a decision on imposing a sugar cess and allowing an incentive for digital payments. However, composition dealers and those filing nil returns will be allowed to file quarterly returns. Keeping in view the record production of sugar in the current sugar season, and consequent depressed sugar prices and build-up of sugarcane arrears, the Council discussed the issue of imposition of sugar cess and reduction in GST rate on ethanol in great detail.

Sandeep Chilana, Partner, Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas, says, "The GST Council's decision to simplify the GST return form by making it a single page return is likely to bring buoyancy to tax collections on account of improved compliance". Currently, 49 percent is held by the government while the remaining 51 percent is with the private financial institution, comprising HDFC Ltd, HDFC Bank Ltd, ICICI Bank Ltd, NSE Strategic Investment Co and LIC Housing Finance Ltd.
