PM Modi invites Sonia, Manmohan for 'Chai pe Charcha' to discuss GST bill

Prime minister Narendra Modi has invited Congress president Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today at his residence for doing 'chai pe charcha' regarding the passage of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill which has long been pending.

On his various trips abroad, PM Modi has assured foreign investors that he would make the landmark indirect tax law a reality by 2016.

According to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, "We have absolutely no hesitation even at the level of Prime Minister, we have never had in it in the past, we don't have it (now). He is willing to speak to everyone".

The GST Constitution Amendment Bill was stalled by the Congress in the last session of Parliament demanding that a revenue-neutral rate not higher than 18 per cent be mentioned in the bill.
