GST Crisis: A challenge for Federal Structure???

GST Crisis
GST Crisis

Relevance: 

In the recent past, the Union Government of India and the provincial governments in the States were at logger-head on the issue of distribution of tax proceeds and the fair share of compensation that the states are entitled for. The conflict sharpenned especially in the backdrop of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic which has impacted the economy very badly and has reduced the figure of tax collection.
GST tried to revolutionise the tax regime in India with introduction of one nation one tax system. It also caused changes in center-state relations and affected the federal structure. Now with the on-going crisis a major challenge is looming large on the newly evolving Center-State relationship. Here we would suggest you to look into the same from the perspective of GS Mains Paper 2.
