PATNA: Deputy chief minister and finance minister Sushil Kumar Modi, who is also chairman of the empowered committee of state finance ministers on Goods and Services Tax (GST), has been invited to address the students of National Law School of India University, Bangalore, on May 25. Modi said he would deliver a lecture on 'Taxation of supplies of Goods and Services: Issues relating to state policy, governance and welfare' at a one-day conference being jointly sponsored by the Planning Commission and the university. The deputy CM, who will be the chief guest, will also inaugurate the conference. The deputy CM said here on Wednesday that GST is being viewed as a major reformatory step in the field of direct taxes after independence. "Experts are of the view that following implementation of the GST and the empowered committee's recommendations, at least 2% increase in the GDP growth of the country will be possible," Modi said. The conference at Bangalore will be attended, among others, by former chairman of National Human Rights Commission and retired chief justice of India Rajendra Babu, Prof P K Choubey and Prof K K Pandey of the Indian Institute of Public Administration, former commissioner of Central Board of Excise and Customs T R Rastogi besides many tax experts of the country. Modi who left for Mumbai on Wednesday to attend the two-day national executive meeting of the BJP, will leave for Bangalore on Thursday evening from there.
