GST Council meeting happened on 24th February 2019 (Sunday).
The 33rd GST Council meeting came to an end after heavy theatrics. The Council was initially supposed to meet on the 20th Feb 2019 via video conferencing but was later deferred to 24th Feb 2019 to meet at Delhi, post the refusal by some state FMs. With the general elections around the corner, it was highly speculated that the meeting would be politically driven.
The sops announced by the GST Council will boost the real estate selling henceforth and monitor one of the most unregulated sectors in India, by ensuring that the rate cut benefits are passed on to the neo and middle-class home buyers.
