In a one-day special session of the legislature on Saturday, Himachal Pradesh assembly unanimously passed the Himachal Pradesh Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill, 2017, after debating on it for almost an hour.
Cutting across party lines members of the state legislature supported the bill and hoped that the new law would be beneficial for both the state government and the people.
Himachal Pradesh, which is a consumer state, will be benefited by the bill. It will help in boosting trade and commerce once it was implemented in the country. All trade and commerce bodies in the state have hailed the bill,” Virbhadra Singh said.
