As far as, from the point of view of business, they don't appreciate this move of GST by Modi govt because they have to pay tax on a monthly basis if their turnover is more than 2000000 so what they do, they do their business or pay the tax all time.

Yes, I agree with the topic GST is really one nation, one tax system. However, GST is not applicable on Petroleum products and alcohol right now. But it is necessary to bring these products under GST to reduce the high prices of petrol.

GST has been divided into two parts CGST and SGST. So GST is beneficial for business people but as well as for middle and lower class people it is biggest disadvantage because they didn't have money to pay tax.

On the other hand, After Coming GST ni think 60% of people didn't understand GST what exactly it is and how it works.

Another disadvantage is that there is amendment in GST so government Also didn't work properly in it. People get confused about GST.

According to my point of view, GST is indirect tax or consumption tax which is levied in India to make a single market. Gst is divided into two parts first one is cgst and sgst. As we know India having a very large population so GST works in two-level central and state level for a better environment.

Hello friends,

As my point of view, GST is having good and bad also. GST reduce corruption also improve the economy it's the good thing. But so many people are poor in our country they don't have money to eat food so how they can be paid tax they are also the part of our nation I think it's the bad thing about GST.

Yeah, I think GST is one initial step that our govt has taken.

1st it reduces the other taxes like vat, excuses duty and other services tax.

2ndly it reduces the corruption.

3rdly it is One Nation One Tax, so people of any state would not have to pay extra tax and get direct Benefit of it.

4th it is more comprehensive than before and it is dual system tax i.e chat and sgst. So People do not get much confused over tax.

GST mainly refers to goods and services tax. But how many of us know exactly about the goods and services system in our country. I think 50% of the people don't know about it. The awareness of this tax system should be made first. Gst is mainly introduced to increase the number of taxpayers in the country. It reduces inflation in the country. Yes, I agree with the topic GST is really one nation, one tax system.

Goods and service tax (GST) has really proved impressive in market. Earlier there were multiple taxes extracted from the people which was really annoying but since the introduction of GST, a single tax have been imposed on the various products thus increasing the transparency in the taxation system giving boost to our economy.

In India GST has primarily been divided into 5 slabs i.e. 0%, 5%, 12%, 18% & 28%.

And the various goods have been categorized into these slabs.

But still. There is an issue related to fuel and alcohol. Why haven't they been bought under GST. It is clearly observable that the prices of fuel are sky rocketing day by day and I guess you might know that there is nearr about (40%-50%) tax implemented on them. There for giving a good boost to economy these products need to be subsumed under GST, then only GST can be termed as one nation & one price.

In my point of view, GST system is good for our country. We daily hear in news about corruption. It's not good for our country. Every state has own different -2 type taxes impose. Our current govt take initiative for one country, one Tax. It's take good decision by our Prime Minister. GST result we can see after from one to two years. It would be given fruitful result for India. And our India will be reached on top 10 development countries.

Hello, everyone.

In my point of view, Every coin has to face same here GST has Central GST AND State GST.

As GST stands for goods and service tax.

After 2014 GST is one of them. Major step took by the government. It helps in raising the Economy of the country as mostly everything comes under GST. Before GST in some states people have to pay to much tax but after GST is applied everyone have to pay an equal amount of money which results in a good amount of money is collected by the government As we know that in GST products are divided into 5 phases 0%, 5%, 12%, 18%, 28 according to the category of the products.

Yes, Gst is the symbol of cooperative federalism, meaning "ONE NATION, ONE TAX SYSTEM".

As when we compare the two periods pre-Gst and post-Gst, we can see that Gst has subsumed most of the indirect taxes, making the tax system more transparent and easy to understand.

So, Gst is the move in a correct direction, although there are many problems which has been faced and which are yet to be faced in order to make this initiative a successful journey.

In my point of view, GST is good as well as bad depending on the level or part of the people we are talking.

It is implemented in different ways as CGST and SGST. Good in the way that every one have to pay tax. Their is transparency in taxation system. Tax revenue increases and much more.

Definitely, these points help the country to grow.

But the other part also for the Petrol and alcohol. Why it not come under GST.

It will benefit if they both come under GST.

If we talk about small shops which are shutdown. But if they get registered it benefits both country as well as them.

GST, it is a very good intiative taken by the government. It is applied to simplify the taxation process by replacing many taxes such as service, central excise tax, etc. Calling gst as 'one nation one tax' may not be right yet because there are multiple tax rates. According to world bank, India's gst is the most complex gst in the world.

When you think about just Gst is a publicity of government you are not wrong or may be right but when you have seen your credit bill in which a lot of slab of taxs involve and what will be say about the CGST, SGST, IGST what is dram. And why Petrol and Diesel are not included in GST slab, this is not come in our one nation. If these items are buying this nation so included in Gst slab. Otherwise, stop these slogans one tax one nation and say one nation, according to running government our tax.

Gst is an indirect tax towards goods and services levied in India. The levied tax is paid not only towards goods but also refunded to the production and supply other than former consumer. It is paid in five types of slabs they are 0%, 5%, 12, 18, &28%. It is paid in terms of pregst and past gst. Pre- Gst is paid up to 18%& past -Gst is paid up to 26- 28%. Except petroleum, electricity and gas are not considered under gst but it is can be continued as regular tax.

Payal said: (Sep 2, 2018)  
Yes, Because with the implementation of GST all the other indirect taxes have been removed. GST is a combination of all the indirect taxes. Due to GST, tax cannot be charged at all the stages through which a product or service passes from manufacturer to the customer. Tax is charged only once. The main reason of implementing GST was to make nation tax compliant by charging only one tax instead of multiple. Though the direct taxes have to be paid but it has become easier to pay taxes now after implementation of GST though initially it was difficult for people to understand it.

In my point of view, it is one of the many good initiatives taken by PM Modi. It enables us to understand the tax system of India in a more comprehensive way. As you see every day many people caught by CBI raids when compared to the pre-Modi era. I believe these are happening because of GST.

GST was coined mainly to make each and every person pays the TAX.

# It is used to eliminate "BLACK MONEY", since everybody is imposed to pay the tax.

# There will be ease in the business, because GST eliminates the major previous taxes namely the.

Excise duty, serivce tax, VAT (value added tax), central sales tax (CST).

# This will increase the foreign investment in India (Here comes the MAKE IN INDIA). Thus increasing the GDP (gross domestic product).

# This helps in the movement of goods from one state to another easier, since the taxes are not collected in the borders.

# Mainly two kinds of TAX they are central (CGST) and state (SGST). Which helps in the limiting paper work for the buisnes people.

# so, GST will definitely lead to the economic growth in India. Not immediately, slowly but definetly.

As coin has two opposite sides, gst also has two opposite sides. Many countries are gst nation, gst applied in right way but in India, gst is not implemented in not right way. Gst has five rates :0%, 5%, 12%, 18%, 28%. But India is country of 125crore people, we can't make everyone happy.

Hello friend's,

Yes, it is absolutely true that GST really a one nation, one tax system. But the definition of GST in our country is totally different than other countries, because GST the world over, it is simple tax with a single rate applicable across the board, in a few countries. It has dual rate. If in India, you can't have a single rate. But you can have dual rate. But how, you can have eight rate.

So I think, when I look at India with GST. So as per my mind, I feel it is mockery of GST. Yes, there is no doubt that GST is a very beautiful thing but the implementation of GST was not good and thereby during the implementation of flawed GST many samall and medium sector have gone in deficit. And meanwhile the crisis of employment has increased.

Let me tell you very recent example of flawed GST,

In tripura there is a one old bus stand before the implementation of GST there was 5, 000 samall and medium sector that was the source of employment for the people's. But during the GST almost 4600 small and medium sector has been shutdown. And thereby the employment of the people's destroyed.

This is only one example, which I told you. Besides that, there can be also many another example.

That's my own outlook regarding to the GST.

Yes! GST is really a one nation, one tax system. In my opinion one of the best initiatives taken by government which is in favor of people whose belong below poor line. As you can se if you buy a 5oo rupee shoes there is no just for <Rs 500. But for more than 500 you have to pay GST.

The biggest benefit that I have observed is this, the person who didn't even know about the taxes prevailing in India is now talking and thinking about the gst. And the fact behind this, is the tax system is now easy to understand and now we know what we paying for what tax we are giving.

See every initiative has it's flaws and you can't even resolve the issue in a country of 125 crore people and you can't make everyone happy, so I think it is a good initiave in my point of view.

GST i.e. Goods and Services tax is a very good initiative taken by the government. GST is added at each step pf the production process but it is refunded for everyone other than the final consumer. The GST on products is divided into 5 slabs, i.e.0%, 5%, 12%, 18% and 28%.

However, GST is not applicable on Petroleum products and alcohol right now. But it is necessary to bring these products under GST to reduce the high prices of petrol.

India has dual GST, Central GST and State GST.

However, it was opposed by the opposition parties because they believed it was virtually same as the earlier system of taxation.
