The 24-day session was convened primarily to pass the GST bill paving the way for a July 1 rollout. In the previous meeting of the GST Council held on June 11, state Finance Minister D Jayakumar had reiterated that the council must look into the rates of the entertainment sector. He added that the high rates can be detrimental to the respective sectors.

Fireworks, a major industry in the state of Tamil Nadu, the Minister had held, also needed attention. Jayakumar stated that the current 28 percent levied under the new tax regime may harm the sector's growth prospect.

The GST Bill has been unanimously passed in state Assemblies including Delhi, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Goa, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Tripura, Himachal Pradesh and Odisha.
