A Bill namely, the Taxation Laws (Amendment) Act, 2007 (Bill No. 13/C of 2007) had been introduced in Lok Sabha in order to further amend the Central Sales Tax Act, 1956 and the Additional Duties of Excise (Goods of Special Importance) Act, 1957. The Bill has since been passed by both houses of the Parliament. The Union Government has, by a Gazette Notification dated the 29th March 2007 brought the amendment Act into force. The amendments come into effect from the 1st April 2007 . The salient features of the amendment Act are as follows:
 
The Amendment Act seeks to amend sub-section (1) and (2) of section 8 and sub-section (4) of Section 8. Consequential amendments are made to Sections 6, 7,9,10 and 10A of the CST Act. Apart from these amendments, Section 14 has been amended in order to omit tobacco and tobacco products from the purview of declared goods. The Amendment Act omits section 4 and the second schedule to the Additional Duties of Excise (Goods of Special Importance) Act, 1957 and amends the first schedule.
 
2. The net effect of the amendments is as follows:-
a) The rate of CST on inter-State sale to registered dealers (against Form-C) shall stand reduced from 4% to 3% or the rate of VAT applicable in the State of the selling dealer, whichever is lower.
b) The rate of CST on inter-State sale other than sale to registered dealers shall be the rate of VAT applicable in the State of the selling dealer.
c) The rate of CST on inter-State sale to Government Departments shall also be the rate of VAT applicable in the State of the selling dealer, indicated at (b) above. The facility of inter-State purchases by Government Departments against Form-D stands withdrawn.
d) Enabling provisions have been made for the States to levy VAT on Tobacco.
