New Delhi: Security agencies were apprehending that militants operating in Jammu and Kashmir could step up attacks against security forces and civilians following the surgical strike conducted by the Army targeting terror launch pads in PoK.

"We have put security forces in Jammu and Kashmir on high alert and asked them to be extra vigilant taking into account the prevailing situation," a source said.

GST limits regional sops

The Telegraph 2 hours 23 minutes ago

The GST council in its second meeting today agreed to the proposal to phase out all area-based excise or VAT exemptions, except those given to industry in the Northeast and hill states, in the new...
GST Council agrees on 5 areas, says Finance Minister Arun Jaitley
At the GST Council on Friday, the Centre and states disagreed on the interpretation of decisions taken in the last meeting.
Differences between Centre and states on GST persist
The Centre and states on Friday disagreed on control over service tax filers under the goods and services tax (GST) regime but agreed on area-based exemptions under the new indirect tax regime. They also finalised five set of rules, which will be notified once the GST laws are enacted by the Centre and individual states. The government has set November 22 as cut-off date for resolving all the issues related to implementation of GST, possibly from April 1, 2017. The GST Council, which had its second meeting here on Friday, agreed on the treatment of exemption from GST. Speaking to reporters after the GST Council meeting, finance minister Arun Jaitley said that there will be levy of taxes on all units given exemption in these areas but it will be reimbursed later thus grandfathering the incentives available to them. At present, the Centre gives exemption to 11 states mostly in north-eastern and hilly regions from excise duty to promote industry there. "It is possible that some of the exemptions may get phased out. But for the exemptions which may remain how will these exemptions fit into the GST system. So, the Council took up for discussion the management of these exemptions. And it was agreed that there would be a levy of tax under the GST system on all exempted entities," Jaitley said. Meanwhile, indicating friction between the Centre and states, there were divisions over approving the minutes of the first meeting of the Council, held last week with at least two major states disagreeing with what was documented with regards to assessing 11 lakh service tax filers in the new dispensation. "Obviously the first item has to be approval of minutes of the last meeting. With regard to one item recorded in the minutes with regard to the service tax assessments in the new dispensation, there was a long discussion on the interpretation on the decision taken in the last meeting and that discussion consumed a lot of time today. That discussion was inconclusive and therefore it will continue in the next meeting on 18th (October)," Jaitley said. The second meeting of the GST Council finalised rules for registration, payments, returns, refunds and invoices under the new regime. With this as many as six issues have been settled by the Council in two meetings in a span of one week. The discussion on service tax assessment and the formula for calculating compensation to be paid to states in case of revenue loss as a result of implementation of the GST regime would be taken up at the next meeting on October 18-20. In the next meeting, which has been pushed by a day, the GST Council will take up the big-ticket item of standard GST rate and slabs.
Differences crop up in GST Councils meeting
The Goods & Services Tax (GST) Council on Friday could not adopt the minutes of its first meeting held earlier this month after a couple of States said that one of the items did not match their un...
Area-based exemptions to industry will continue as refunds under GST
States seek review of decision on control over service tax assessees
GST Council agrees on 5 areas; differ over 1st meet decision
In signs of fracture, the Centreand states today disagreed on decisions reached at the firstmeeting of the GST Council on service tax assessment althoughthey reached a consensus on area based exemption in the newtax regime.
Five sets of GST draft rules approved by Council: Jaitley
Five sets of draft rules relating to registration, payments, returns and refunds under the Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime were approved by the GST Council here on Friday, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said.

Lodha Committee effect: BCCI staring at leadership crisis
In the wake of the Lodha Committee recommendations, BCCI is staring at a leadership crisis as 95 per cent of the top brass will be wiped out if the report is implemented with retrospective effect. According to cricket board sources, this matter was discussed by the BCCI members at the Special General Meeting here before it was adjourned for tomorrow on technical grounds. The discussions focussed on the implications of the recommendations of the Supreme Court-appointed committee, with members feeling that the BCCI is caught between a rock and a hard place, said a source who attended the meeting. The members were of the view that if the recommendations are implemented, there will be chaos in Indian cricket as 95 per cent of the BCCI leadership will be wiped out, the sources said. "We are sure that the Lodha Committee wants betterment of cricket but who will run Indian cricket if the entire leadership is finished? There will be organisational chaos and it will spell doom for Indian cricket," said a BCCI member. The member noted that the situation has emerged in the middle of the cricket season, with 13 international Test matches lined up. "If there is no experienced leadership, who will manage the affairs? Most work at the lower level is done by the honorary members," he said. The member, on condition of anonymity, said the recommendations are generally implemented with prospective effect but the Lodha committee has said its suggestions should be implemented with retrospective effect. With regard to the cooling off period, the BCCI members feel it should be at least six years instead of three years recommended by the Lodha committee.

[India], Sept.30 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Friday again directed Karnataka to release 6000 cusecs of Cauvery water from October 1 till October 6. During the hearing, Tamil Nadu's Counsel Sekhar Naphade accused the Karnataka Government of failing to comply with the apex court's orders by passing the resolution. The Karnataka government, however, defended its action, saying that the will of the people was reflected while passing the resolution in the state assembly. The apex court asked the Cauvery Water Management Board (CWMB) to visit Karnataka and Tamil Nadu and file a report on the "ground realities" by Thursday. It has also asked the governments of Kerala, and Puducherry to nominate one representative by 4.p.m tomorrow. The apex court has asked the board to file its report by Thursday. A meeting was convened by Union Water Resource Minister Uma Bharti, on Thursday, to sort out differences between both states. However, it failed to reach any conclusion. Addressing the media, shortly after the meet, Bharti stated that no solution was arrived at as the Tamil Nadu Government did not accept the Karnataka Government's suggestion of sending an expert committee to assess the Cauvery Basin. "If tension rises between Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, I am going to sit on a hunger strike on the border of both states," she threatened. The Karnataka Government yesterday requested the Centre to form an expert panel to assess the availability of water in the Cauvery Basin. (ANI)
