Bengaluru, Sep 20 (PTI) Following criticism over GST council's decision on taxing certain essential commodities, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Tuesday said the next council meeting would discuss regarding certain matters on implementation of rates.

He was responding to remarks by Deputy Leader of Congress in the Legislative Assembly U T Khader and that party's senior MLA R V Deshpande, who expressed concerns about bringing certain essential commodities under GST.

"All aspects were discussed in the GST Council and a decision was arrived at unanimously, certain things like curd it is not taxing curd, but on branded curd and its packing; they were unable to take credit so 5 per cent tax, actually the rate has to come down, but they are not passing it on to the consumers," Bommai said.
