The government in a special session of the Parliament held in the midnight of 30th June/1st July has introduced the much discussed Goods and Service Tax (GST) through out India. Discussion on the various aspects of the GST has come through government advertisements, social media, statements of the various political leaders and corporates etc. But still, there is confusion in many aspects of implementing the same. There is a clear feeling that sufficient ground work and preparations have not been made and the public will be in difficulty in their day to day activities, as was in the case of demonetisation, which was a disaster. The boycott of the midnight function by leaders of many opposition political parties have increased the anxiety of the people.
Anyhow, GST is being implemented from today. The first one week will give an indication of what to expect.
