Eighth meeting of GST Council took place on 3-4th January 2017. Issue of dual control remained unresolved. Some states have raised a new issue of split in tax rate in ratio of 60:40 between states and centre instead of equally dividing GST between centre and states. The next meeting has been scheduled for January 16, 2017, which will discuss issues relating to administrative powers.
