New Delhi: The GST Bill, which was passed by the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday, is likely to be tabled in the Lok Sabha on August 8 for which the BJP has issued a whip to its members in the Lower House to ensure its smooth passage.

The whip issued by the ruling party today has asked its members to be present in the House on Monday. GST bill will be tabled and likely taken up for voting on Monday," a party leader said.

The Constitution Amendment Bill is expected to sail through the Lok Sabha, where the BJP-led NDA has a commanding majority, without much difficulty after it received bipartisan support in the Upper House. PTI
