Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has rejected the allegation of discrimination against non-BJP ruled states over the issue of GST compensation. She said, no state has been given the compensation since August and Centre will honour its commitment to the states with regard to GST compensation.

The Minister said this while replying to discussion on Appropriation (No 3) Bill, 2019 in the Rajya Sabha yesterday.

She said, IGST dues pertaining to 2017-18 were discussed in the GST council and a Group of Ministers has been formed to look into the issue. After the Minister’s reply, the Rajya Sabha returned the Appropriation (No 3) Bill, 2019 to Lok Sabha.

The Bill is related to issuing of additional government expenditure of over 21,246 crore rupees in the current fiscal. It is the first batch of Supplementary Demands for Grants for 2019-20.

Several members including Jairam Ramesh of Congress, KK Ragesh of CPI (M), Manish Gupta of TMC and others participated in the discussion.
