In an exclusive interview, former Finance Minister P Chidambaram said that the GST idea was conceived by the UPA government in 2005-06. He welcomed the decision of the NDA government to implement GST. But, he said that the country is underprepared for GST. To a question, Chidambaram stated that the Congress is not hungry to take credit of GST. He said it is the decision of the party not to participate in the roll out of GST. Taxation structure will be simplified once GST is in place.
