NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India needs to roll out the proposed Goods and Services Tax (GST) by Sept. 16, 2017, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said on Thursday.

Jaitley added that the government was aiming to implement the new sales tax next April.

Under a law passed by parliament for the tax's implementation, some of the existing levies would expire after Sept. 16.
