Why Integrated GST still remains a grey area under goods and services tax

This part of the new tax has not still been fully resolved, and many states do not even know how it is being shared between them and the Centre
The goods and services tax (GST) has come a long way, from being disruptive in the beginning and difficult to comply with in the initial years. It was also unable to generate expected revenue earlier. A lot of that has changed now, with the tax having moved to a seemingly sustained revenue trajectory at the start of FY20.
Under the GST law, states have been guaranteed compensation to ensure that a 14 per cent growth in revenue is 'protected' every year till 2022, in case collections under State GST (SGST) fall short. A separate GST Compensation Cess is collected for it.
