“The 12th Council meeting approved UTGST and SGST. Officers had already done the groundwork, the drafts were already circulated. In the past meetings, the Council has already approved CGST (Central GST), IGST (Integrated GST) and Compensation drafts,” Finance Minister Arun Jaitley was quoted as saying.
