MP Lalwani writes letter to CM
On the other, MP Shankar Lalwani also made efforts on this issue on Friday. He wrote a letter to Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Friday. In the letter, Lalwani informed the CM that he had talks with officials of the GST Council a few days ago, who gave some suggestions. Accordingly, the setting up of a bench of GSTAT in the city is possible along with Bhopal. The appointment of two members each at both places is possible to roll out the bench in both cities, alternatively, the sitting of the bench is possible 3 days each in both ities. But it requires a recommendation letter from the State Government. Lalwani requested the CM to act accordingly.
