Interests of the Special Category, North-Eastern States and Union Territories have to be especially kept in mind. b) The Group will examine different models and see the manner in which the power of levy, collection and appropriation of revenue should be vested in the Centre and the States by looking at the pros and cons of various models. c) The various models suggested by the Working Group should ensure that double taxation is avoided. d) The Working Group would ensure that the suggested models take into account the problems faced during Inter-State transactions and any revenue loss. e) The Working Group should consider how exempted goods and services and Non-VAT items such as petroleum goods and alcohol might be treated under the new regime. f) The models developed should reflect the interests of the Trade, Industry, Agriculture and Consumers, with due concern to the Centre-State relations.
