09.06.2023: Next GST Council meet likely to approve 50 appellate tribunal branches

The next Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council meeting is likely to approve the number of appellate tribunal benches to be formed in each state, the rules for appointments to the benches, and other procedural issues, a government official said.

“The Council, in its next meeting, will approve the number of branches of appellate tribunals. Approximately 50 appellate tribunal branches may be formed across India. The benches will be constituted based on the recommendations of each state. Each state will recommend the number of benches based on the population. Ahead of the GST Council meeting, states will send recommendations on the number of benches. The total number will be formally approved by the Council in the next meeting,” the official told Moneycontrol.

The next GST Council meeting is likely to be held in the last week of June or the first week of July.

The formation of rules for appointment and the procedural part will also be discussed and approved by the Council. The rules will be discussed in the law committee ahead of the council meeting.
