GST regime: Govt in final stages of discussions with states, says Jaitley
"I am in the last stage of my discussion with the states on the eve of Parliament session before introducing the amendments to the GST law in Parliament," Jaitley said at the India Global Forum meeting.

The month-long Winter Session of Parliament is scheduled to commence on November 24.

Seeking support from the opposition parties, especially Congress, in passing the key legislation, Jaitley said they should realise that the "merits of some of these actions have positive attitude towards them".

"I do hope that my friends in the Opposition parties, particularly the principle Opposition, after a wasted opportunity when they were in government, spend a more fruitful tenure when they are in opposition," Jaitley said.
