Decoding GST in India- Merits & Demerits March 20, 2018

The implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) has been seen as a revolutionary reform of the taxation system in India. The GST is a comprehensive and destination-based consumption tax levied at multiple stages of value addition in the supply chain of the products and services. It came into effect from 1st July, 2017 and aims to enforce a unified taxation system in the country. The two key advantages associated with GST are the reduction in the cascading effect of the taxes and the plausible reduction in the taxes through the provision of input tax credit.
