Ranchi, Aug 17. (ANI): A day-long session of Jharkhand Assembly has been convened today to ratify Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill passed by both Houses of Parliament recently.

According to reports, both the ruling BJP led NDA alliance and the JMM led opposition have prepared their floor strategy for today's one day session of state Assembly on GST.

The government has asked all the Secretaries and other concerned officers to come prepared and be present in their gallery for any urgent query.

Jharkhand will be the third state after Assam and Bihar to ratify the GST Bill.

Last Friday, Assam became the first state in the country to ratify the constitution amendment bill on the GST as the assembly unanimously passed the bill.

Earlier, Bihar became the first non-NDA state to ratify the Constitution Amendment Bill on GST after Chief Minister Nitish Kumar counted virtues of the tax reform. (ANI)
