 What are the benefits of GST for consumers?

Answer: For the consumer

  • Single and transparent tax proportionate to the value of goods and services: Due to multiple indirect taxes being levied by the Centre and State, with incomplete or no input tax credits available at progressive stages of value addition, the cost of most goods and services in the country today are laden with many hidden taxes. Under GST, there would be only one tax from the manufacturer to the consumer, leading to transparency of taxes paid to the final consumer.
  • Relief in overall tax burden: Because of efficiency gains and prevention of leakages, the overall tax burden on most commodities will come down, which will benefit consumers.

Other Updates

  • NCLT Order against the Corporate Debtor, Magna Opus Hospitality Pvt. Ltd for the Corporate Insolvency Resolution Process and the order for Moratorium of 180 days starting from 12th April, 2017.
