The Arunachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly on Wednesday passed two amendment bills, including one seeking to transfer civil suits pending in the courts of Deputy Commissioners (DCs) to others.

Meanwhile, the second bill proposes to make modifications in the Goods and Services Tax (GST), in accordance with the amendments of the central law.

The Chief Minister – Pema Khandu moved ‘The Arunachal Pradesh Civil Courts (Amendment) Bill, 2022’, which seeks to make provisions for transferring civil suits pending in the courts of DCs to those of junior and senior division civil judges, and district and additional district judges, as per their territorial and pecuniary jurisdiction.

The proposed legislation will lessen the workload of regular courts, the statement of the bill said.

Besides, the Arunachal Pradesh Goods and Service Tax (1st Amendment) Bill, 2022 was tabled by Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein, who also holds the Tax, Excise and Narcotics portfolio.

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

As the Centre has amended the Central GST Act, the state needs to do the same and that is why the bill has been brought, according to a statement.

Taking to Twitter, Khandu wrote “My government is committed to development of Arunachal Pradesh and welfare of its citizens. Detailed the priorities of government while addressing the august House on the second day of 10th Session of 7th Arunachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly, today.”
