GST, or "Goods and Services Tax", is a comprehensive indirect tax implemented in India on 1st July 2017. It replaced previous indirect taxes like excise duty, service tax, VAT, etc.

  • Central Excise Duty
  • Service Tax
  • Additional Excise Duty
  • Additional Customs Duty (CVD)
  • Special Additional Duty of Customs (SAD)
  • Value Added Tax (VAT)
  • Central Sales Tax
  • Luxury Tax

What led to GST implementation in India? 

GST, the Goods and Services Tax, was brought in to replace the previous intricate tax system with a more streamlined one. 

Here are the major reasons for GST implementation in India: 

  • Elimination of cascading tax effects: Before GST, taxes were successively applied, making goods and services pricier. GST eliminates this issue, making items more affordable.
  • Streamlining the tax structure: GST simplifies the complicated tax structure from before, reducing the effort required for businesses to comply with tax laws.
  • Easier business operations: GST allows businesses to operate more easily across Indian states by standardizing tax laws, reducing their compliance load.
  • Stimulating economic growth: GST is projected to promote economic growth by improving tax compliance, reducing tax evasion, and formalizing the economy. It might also increase government tax revenue, supporting infrastructure and social welfare initiatives.

By amalgamating a large number of Central and State taxes into a single Tax, GST has emerged as the biggest taxation reform in the economy post-independence.

As an indirect tax, GST is included in the MRP of goods purchased or the fee of service paid by a person. GST is a comprehensive tax structure covering both goods and services, viz. Goods and Services Tax (GST). The simultaneous introduction of GST at both the Centre and State levels has integrated taxes on goods and services for the purpose of setting off and ensuring that the cascading effect of taxes is resorted to. Especially in cases of earlier tax regimes
