Direct Tax Updates:
- India could review the goods and services tax (GST) structure to further prune the number of items in the highest slab of 28% as it attempts to stave off a slump in demand. Some states have favoured a reduction in tax rates, worried that the slowdown may get entrenched, and have communicated their concern to the Centre. The GST Council may meet on June 20, ahead of the budget presentation on July 5, and these issues could figure in the discussions. This will be the first meeting of the council to be chaired by Nirmala Sitharaman after she took over as union finance minister in the new government. “Something needs to be done urgently — demand slowdown is quite visible,” said a senior government official with a state government that’s likely to press for a reduction in tax rates. “It could get further entrenched Jobs are getting impacted.”
- The revised stressed asset resolution framework released by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Friday is nothing but the original one with a dash of humility. The central bank has managed to keep most of the elements of the infamous 12 February 2018 circular in the new one too. There is no comeback of dispensation schemes such as strategic debt restructuring (SDR) or S4A. Bankers will continue to recognize defaulters as special mention accounts right from day one of default. Most importantly, lenders cannot escape provisioning.
