Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a new Indirect tax in India levied w.e.f. 1st July, 2017 and this GST law is not only new but is evolving with experience as is witnessed by decisions of GST Council, the apex forum to decide and recommend on GST legislations & administration and recent amendments as well as judicial pronouncements.
During the last 17-18 months of GST, there have been various issues on which tax payers sought clarity on interpretation of provision of GST laws by way of writ petitions. There have been numerous writ petitions filed in various high courts of country and apex court seeking directions to be issued to tax administration. These writs have been disposed of by courts in line with the legislative objective and constitutional powers. With the setting up of Authorities for Advance Ruling (AAR) and National Anti-profiteering Authority (NAA), rulings and orders have also been pronounced by these Authorities. Many advance rulings have travelled to Appellate Authority for Advance Rulings (AAAR).
The book is broadly divided into five parts- Part I contains cases on Constitutional framework, Part II contains cases in 15 Chapters on CGST/SGST Acts, Part III contains cases in 4 Chapters on IGST, Part IV covers cases on Compensation Cess and Part V contains Advance and Appellate Rulings. This book comprehensively covers majority of all such judicial pronouncements, orders and rulings with summary/gist of judgment and full text arranged and indexed alphabetically, chronologically and subject wise.
