He said more than 71 lakh central and state taxpayers have migrated to the Goods and Services Tax (GST) system and and have completed registration. Another 15.67 lakh new applications for registration have been received.

He appealed to businesses to pass on the benefit of the reduced tax under GST to consumers, failing which the anti-profiteering mechanism will be triggered.

The GST Council, headed by Jaitley and comprising representatives of all states, also finalised the e-way bill that mandates pre-registration of all goods worth over Rs 50,000 before they are moved for sale beyond 10 km.

The next GST Council meeting will be held on September 9 in Hyderabad.
