As the bill for a pan-India GST has been passed by the Lok Sabha, the Indian parliament’s lower house, but is stalled in the Rajya Sabha where the ruling National Democratic Alliance currently lacks a majority.

2. Who is the chairperson of the Special Empowered Committee on GST which consists all the finance minister of the state?
