“We are working with the state governments for an early implementation of GST,” Mukherjee said after presenting the presidential awards to the officers of customs and central excise at a ceremony here.
Under the GST regime, uniform taxes will be levied by the central and the sta the arena of indirect taxation in the country,” he said.
Mukherjee said the proposed reform would help boost tax revenues for central as well as the state governments.
Implementation of the proposed tax reform has been delayed due to opposition from some of the state governments, especially the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP)-ruled states like Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Karnataka.
 “GST is expected to be a more efficient system of taxation and is likely to give a boost to the tax revenues of the centre and the states,” he said.
