The Union Government is "not adamant" on GST rates and it could be relooked by the GST Council depending on revenue realisation, Minister of State for Finance Arjun Ram Meghwal said on Friday. "We have to see the revenue realisation first. Government is not adamant on the rates. We have a federal structure. We have to take the view of the states also in the GST council," he said. During his interaction with the business community at the Greater Kochi Economic Forum, organised by 'Janmabhumi' daily here, entrepreneurs in the startup business expressed concern over the service tax shifting from 13 to 15 and now 18 per cent. "You do not worry, the moment we feel that your revenue realisation is better, all other aspects of the rationale to the rate will be taken to GST Council, and will be decided positively in favour of dealers," he said to a query on whether the government has a vision to bring down the service tax to earlier rates.
