© Mohammed Shaikh GST at 5: The making of a tax system – a timeline of key milestones

The Goods and Services Tax (GST) was introduced on July 1, 2017 after many years of political and legal negotiations. But all the outstanding issues were not put to bed by the implementation of the GST, and several tweaks have been made since then. The GST Council is set to meet for the 47th time on June 28-29 ahead of the fifth anniversary of the indirect tax regime.

But how did India arrive at this juncture? Perhaps the best way to know that is to take a walk through the years.

July 17, 2000: The Centre sets up an Empowered Committee of state finance ministers to monitor the implementation of uniform floor rates of sales tax by states and union territories, to monitor the phasing out of the sales-tax based incentive schemes, to decide milestones and methods for states to switch over to a value added tax (VAT), and to monitor reforms in the Central Sales Tax system
