The Council also decided to introduce a new one-form new GST return filing system, which will be applicable from January 1, 2020.

Friday's meeting of the Council was it's first after the recently concluded general elections. The GST Council, which is headed by the Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, also approved an electronic invoicing system and e-ticketing in multiplexes.

The GST Council also eased the registration process by allowing the use of Aadhaar by businesses to register with GST-Network. "One of the major changes that we've made is for the ease of GST registration. In the earlier system, people had to give various documents.
