Q.3) What are the issues with the argument for special treatment of the states with higher contribution to the GST pool? (10 marks)

“Mentor’s Comments”

  • https://indianexpress.com/article/opinion/columns/gst-concessions-on-covid-relief-nirmala-sitharaman-7353390/
  • In the intro, mention the unanimous adoption of GST through 101st Constitution Amendment Act.
  • In the body mention the issues with the argument for special treatment such as governance issues and contradiction in the welfare state in which unequal treatment is given to citizens in different states, implications for federalism, the locational or geographic advantage enjoyed by the state GST collected by State does not represent the revenue of that state etc.
  • You can conclude by mentioning the need to continue the equal weightage to the states to preserve the idea of federalism.

Nice one , can be better
Issues with argument are :
Special treatment can increase the interstate disparity
States which are contributing higher are also depends on other states
Against the idea of equity as it would defy the centre’s inclusive policy to reduce horizontal imbalances in growth.
Against the idea of cooperative federalism .

the correct word here would be “mutual” (i wanted to explain how things aren’t going well with both center and state) but i wrote consensual in flow. wrong word wrong context. will be careful next time @Swatantra sir.
