Dr Mundle began his presentation with an overview of how the GST evolved from the conceptual stage to its final shape as approved by the GST Council and said it demonstrated a great example of cooperative federalism at work. He concluded by highlighting the challenges that needed to be addressed, going forward. In his view , though the GST was characterised by a rather " messy start" , with multiple rates and several administrative hurdles , these will most likely be smoothened out over time with the experience gained of actual implementation.

The presentation was followed by a very lively "questions and answers " session that was moderated by ShriAbhijitSengupta .
