The central government on Tuesday distributed Rs 86,912 crore in tax subsidies for goods and services to states. Of this, Maharashtra has received the highest amount of Rs 14,145 crore. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had recently claimed that the state was Rs 26.5 billion in arrears. According to this, the state’s arrears of Rs 12,000 crore are still with the Centre. The Center has claimed that all compensation has been distributed among the states. In reaction to this, the state opposition leader, Devendra Fadnavis, took aim at the Mahavikas Aghadi government and demanded an immediate reduction in petrol and diesel tariffs in Maharashtra.
The Central Government yesterday paid the full amount, including the GST, until May 31, 2022, compensation until January to all states. Maharashtra has the highest at Rs 14,145 crore. Will the petrol and diesel tariffs in Maharashtra be reduced now or will it be considered a blessing to show balance from June 1 today? Whenever the time came for the Mahavikas to take the lead as a state government, he considered it a blessing to push through the administration. Devendra Fadnavis has asked, “How much longer will you make the mistake of considering the fault of the Center for the sake of masculinity?” Reduce Gasoline and Diesel Prices in Maharashtra Immediately! That is also what Devendra Fadnavis said.
Meanwhile, Maharashtra received Rs 14,145 crore from the amount disbursed by the central government for goods and services tax. The state has received the largest amount of compensation paid to states. The central government has stated in a press release that it has distributed compensation to all states until May. However, during a televised meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi last month, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray made it clear that the state would receive Rs 26.5 billion from the Centre. There are signs of more conflict between the Center and the state over goods and services tax arrears. This is because the Center has claimed that the states have paid all the compensation. Now only the June amount is paid, the Center said. However, the Chief Minister had said that Rs 26.5 billion was owed in back taxes on goods and services.
