राजस्थान माल और सेवा कर (संशोधन) विधेयक, 2020

जयपुर, 19 फरवरी। राज्य विधानसभा ने बुधवार को विधानसभा में राजस्थान माल और सेवा कर (संशोधन) विधेयक, 2020 ध्वनिमत से पारित कर दिया है। संसदीय कार्य मंत्री श्री शांति कुमार धारीवाल ने सदन में विधेयक प्रस्तुत किया। उन्होंने विधेयक पर हुई चर्चा का जवाब देते हुए बताया कि संसद द्वारा जीएसटी में किए गए संशोधन ही इस विधेयक के जरिये किए गए हैं। विशेष परिस्थितियों एवं तात्कालिक जरूरत के मध्यनजर गत 28 दिसम्बर को इस संबंध में अध्यादेश लाया गया था। उन्होंने बताया कि इसमें किसी सेवा को जोड़ने एवं अपील का अधिकार जीएसटी परिषद् को ही है। राज्य सरकार केवल सुझाव दे सकती है। उन्होंने कहा कि यदि केन्द्र सरकार हड़बड़ी में जीएसटी लागू नहीं करती तो इतनी गड़बड़ियां नहीं होती जिन्हें बार-बार ठीक करना पड़ रहा है। उन्होंने बताया कि पहले पेट्रोल-डीजल पर 3 से 4 रुपए सेस लगता था जो 2014-15 में बढ़ाकर 14 से 15 रुपए प्रति लीटर कर दिया गया। उन्होंने बताया कि इस वित्त वर्ष में केन्द्र सरकार के कर संग्रह में लक्ष्य के मुकाबले ढाई लाख करोड़ की कमी आने वाली है।  
श्री धारीवाल ने बताया कि राज्य का केन्द्र सरकार के पास 2 हजार 600 करोड़ रुपए जीएसटी कंपेन्सेशन एवं 4 हजार 100 करोड़ रुपए सीएसटी का बकाया है। जीएसटी काउंसिल की 37वीं बैठक में पुरजोर तरीके से मांग उठाने पर केवल एक महीने का कंपेन्सेशन दिया गया। उन्होंने कहा कि यह बकाया मिलने पर राज्य की कल्याणकारी सरकार प्रदेश के हित में ज्यादा काम कर सकेगी। श्री धारीवाल ने कहा कि 15वें वित्त आयोग के पश्चात् राज्य को मिलने वाले कर हिस्से में नुकसान हुआ है। पहले कुल कर संग्रह का 42 फीसदी हिस्सा राज्य को मिलता था। अब कुल कर संग्रह के 85 प्रतिशत का 41 फीसदी हिस्सा ही राज्य को मिलता है। 15 फीसदी पहले ही सेस के रूप में कम हो जाता है। संसदीय कार्य मंत्री ने एंटी इवेजन की कार्यवाही का जिक्र करते हुए बताया कि गत सरकार के कार्यकाल में पांच साल के दौरान राज्य में 900 गाड़ियां पकड़कर 25 करोड़ रुपए की वसूली की गई, जबकि वर्तमान सरकार ने केवल एक साल में ही प्रभावी कार्यवाही कर 2 हजार 700 गाड़िया पकड़ी और 75 करोड़ रुपए वसूले। उन्होंने बताया कि वर्ष 2017-18 के दौरान प्रदेश में कई जगह जीएसटी फ्रॉड हुए, लेकिन कोई कार्यवाही नहीं हुई। हमारी सरकार ने भिवाड़ी, जोधपुर एवं कोटा में जीएसटी फ्रॉड करने वालों के खिलाफ कड़ी कार्यवाही की। इससे पहले सदन ने विधयेक को जनमत जानने के लिए परिचालित करने के संशोधन  प्रस्ताव को ध्वनिमत से अस्वीकार कर दिया।  

राजस्थान जन आधार प्राधिकरण विधेयक, 2020

जयपुर, 18 फरवरी। राज्य विधानसभा ने मंगलवार को राजस्थान जन आधार प्राधिकरण विधेयक, 2020  ध्वनिमत से पारित कर दिया। संसदीय कार्य मंत्री श्री शांति कुमार धारीवाल ने सदन में विधेयक प्रस्तुत किया। उन्होंने विधेयक को सदन में लाने के कारणों एवं उद्देश्यों को रेखांकित करते हुए बताया कि राजस्थान राज्य में निवास करने वाले व्यष्टि को सुशासन के अध्युपाय के रूप में लोक कल्याणकारी प्रसुविधाओं और सेवाओं जिनके लिए व्यय राज्य की समेकित निधि से उपगत किया जाता है, के दक्ष पारदर्शी और लक्षि्यत परिदान के लिए जन आधार आई.डी. को अभिज्ञापक के रूप में उपयोग करते हुए राजस्थान जन आधार प्राधिकरण के गठन का उपबंध करने के उदेद्श्य से मुख्यमंत्री राजस्थान ने 2019-20 के उपांतरित बजट में राजस्थान जन आधार योजना की घोषणा की थी।
राजस्थान जन आधार योजना को कानूनी संस्थागत ढ़ांचा उपलब्ध कराने की दृष्टि से यह विधेयक अन्य बातों के साथ-साथ (क) निवासियों को एक संख्याक, एक कार्ड, एक पहचान की मूल अवधारणा के साथ सरकारी सेवाओं के परिदान के लिए एक सर्वव्यापी बहुउदेद्शीय स्कीम को क्रियान्वित करना (ख) व्यष्टि निवासियों के लिए आधार को एकल अभिज्ञापक के रूप में घोषित करने हेतु विधायन का उपबंध करना (ग) इस स्कीम के क्रियान्वयन के लिए राजस्थान जन आधार प्राधिकरण का गठन करना ( घ ) ई-मित्र के विस्तृत नेटवर्क के लिए और ई-मित्र  के प्रबंधन को प्राधिकरण के अधीन लाने के लिए कानूनी ढ़ांचा उपलब्ध कराना (ड) विभिन्न विभागों द्वारा क्रियान्वित समस्त प्रत्यक्ष प्रसुविधा अंतरण (डी.बी.टी.) स्कीमों को प्राधिकरण के अधीन लाना (च) ई-मित्र नेटवर्क के दक्ष प्रबंधन के माध्यम से  निवासियों को घर तक प्रसुविधाओं और सेवाओं का परिदान करना (छ) ऎसी विभिन्न कल्याणकारी स्कीमें, जिनकी प्रसुविधाएं निवासियों को परिदत्त की जाती है, उनके समस्त डाटाबेसों को एकीकृत करना (ज) अंतिम छोर तक वित्तीय समावेश और संस्थागत वित्त के लिए सुविधाओं हेतु उपबंध करना (झ) ग्रामीण क्षेत्रों में ई-वाणिज्य की सुविधा का परिदान करना, उपबंध करता है।
चूंकि राजस्थान राज्य विधान  सभा सत्र में नहीं थी और ऎसी परिस्थितियां विद्यमान थीं जिनके कारण राजस्थान के राज्यपाल के लिए तुरन्त कार्रवाई करना आवश्यक हो गया था। इसलिए उन्होंने 18 दिसम्बर, 2019 को राजस्थान जन आधार प्राधिकरण अध्यादेश 2019 प्रख्यापित किया जो राजस्थान राजपत्र, असाधारण, भाग 4(ख) में दिनांक 18 दिसम्बर 2019 को प्रकाशित हुआ।  इससे पहले सदन ने विधेयक को जनमत जानने के लिए परिचालित करने के संशोधन प्रस्ताव को ध्वनिमत से अस्वीकार कर दिया।
