A resolution on the compensation cess could not be made. According to the Finance Minister, compensation can be extended for at least a couple years, if not five years.

GST came into existence on July 1, 2017, replacing 17 central and state levies. At the time, it was decided that states would be reimbursed for any revenue loss from the new tax for the next five years. Because of the pandemic, states have sought an expansion of this compensation mechanism.
