Guwahati, Aug 12 (KNN) In a series of tweet, the Assam Chief Minister Sarbanand Sonowal today infomed that Assam has become the first state in the country to ratify the Constitutional Amendment Bill relating to GST.

“A historic resolution was passed in Assam Assembly as Assam became the 1st State to ratify the Constitutional Amendment Bill relating to GST,” said Assam CM.

He hoped that Assam will benefit from the GST through higher economic growth & better revenue collection.
