Find out how Only end consumer is the looser after implementation of gst bill?

Our bjp government giving argument that gst bill is the way through which we can stop corruption, generate revenue for the government which in turn increase the inflation in india which ultimately loose the packets of end user. Secondly, after implementation of gst bill everyone comes into the bracket who are not into the tax bracket like panwallah, chaiwallah etc.

Third, states are the main looser of revenue as they are giving their rights to the centre by surrendering 17 to 18 taxes for gst. Suppose if the state is earning 20 percent revenue from local services, then states has to share 10 per cent of revenue with central government. This is the one reason why jayalalitha’s aiadmk walked out of the rajya sabha.

Currently, matter is still unclear about the state tax and central tax, what is the percentage of one tax that will implement across one nation. One thing is clear that any person who is providing any type of services or supplying goods is liable to charge gst. It is a consumption based tax which levies on goods and services at the place where final consumption took place.


The current taxes like excise duty, services tax, custom duty etc will be merged under cgst. The taxes like sales tax, entertainment tax, vat and other state taxes will be levied as sgst.
