The Arunachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly commenced its three-day monsoon session on Tuesday, with the introduction of three significant government bills.

The Minister of Town Planning – Kamlung Mosang introduced the ‘The Arunachal Pradesh Tenancy Bill, 2022’, which intends to create “a vibrant, sustainable, and inclusive rental housing market in the state”.

It will enable the creation of adequate rental housing stock for all the income groups, thereby addressing the homelessness crisis. It will lead to institutionalization of rental housing, by gradually shifting it towards the formal market. This will likely encourage private investment in rental housing as a business strategy for tackling the severe housing crisis.

According to the Chief Minister – Pema Khandu, also the Minister in-charge of Law of Legislative and Justice introduced ‘The Arunachal Pradesh Civil Courts (Amendment) Bill 2022’ that seeks to make provisions for transferring civil suits pending in the courts of Deputy Commissioners (DCs) to the courts of Civil Judge Junior Division, the courts of Civil Judge Senior Division, the courts of Additional District Judge or the courts of District Judge.

It will also authorize the local administrative officers to facilitate referring civil cases received from the people to the concerned village authorities and for making provisions for execution and enforcement of the decree and order passed by the village authority.

The proposed legislation will lessen the workload of the regular courts, and enable the DCs and the Assistant Commissioners to execute and enforce the order or decree passed by the village Authority to make the system more efficacious.

Meanwhile, the third Bill titled – ‘The Arunachal Pradesh Goods and Service Tax (1st Amendment) Bill 2022’, was tabled by the Deputy Chief Minister and Minister in-charge of Tax, Excise and Narcotics – Chowna ‘Mein. Once implemented, it will make it possible to administer taxation under the GST system more effectively.

The Arunachal Pradesh Goods and Services Tax Act, 2017 was enacted with a view to make a provision for levy and collection of tax on intra-state supply of goods or services or both by the Government of Arunachal Pradesh.

The proposed amendment Bill was necessitated as the different provisions under Central Goods and Services Tax (CGST) Act, 2017 have already been amended by the Central Government and the same need to be done in the State Goods and Services Tax (SGST) Act, 2017 as all the revisions are uniformly administered throughout the country under GST; informed the official statement.

Taking to Twitter, the Arunachal Pradesh CM wrote “Every Assembly session is a great opportunity to debate and discuss issues of people’s welfare and state’s development! I’m confident and hopeful that 10th Session of 7th Arunachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly will have fruitful discussions in sync with our people’s aspirations.”
