Badal Patralekh, Minister of Agriculture, Animal Husbandry and Cooperation, Government of Jharkhand participated in the 45th meeting of the GST Council held in Lucknow on Friday. He said that the demand for extension of the GST compensation period of the states was made in the meeting. This period is ending in the coming June 2022.


Minister Badal, representing the Jharkhand government, informed the GST Council about the dues of the state government on PSUs and sought the cooperation of the central government in the payment of this arrears. Badal said that the Government of India keeps pending dues to the state from central institutions, but DVC disconnects the power without informing the state of Jharkhand and also gives notices for payment of the arrears, which is not justified from anywhere.
