What is GST

The existing indirect tax laws are origin-based tax, structured to levy and collect at the point of happening of the prescribed taxable event. The indirect taxes are prone to abuse and also they do not focus on value being added to the product or service. GST will remove this major weakness and will also track the flow of goods or services across India. Goods and Services Tax will also make it easier for good or services to be provided across India.
