Goods and Services Tax (GST) is economic freedom from cascading and complicated tax regime. GST will bring in not only transparency but also economic integration. And economic integration will strengthen the national integration. This is the larger objective of GST Council.

The goods and services tax (GST) is a radical step towards the country’s transformation into a common market. GST is applicable mainly for manufacturer, service provider and trader. In other word we can say GST is applicable for businesses and won’t affect directly to the salaried class, self-employed professionals and mostly for normal people.

So common man can take the benefits of GST, these people have no worry about the implementation of goods and services tax. It will drive their live better; GST is helpful for household items which are used regularly by common man. I think a single tax can bring down prices for most households.

Here you can see the different categories of tax rates on various items that we are using regularly in our day-to-day life.
