GST in India

The Government of India is committed to change all the indirect taxes levied on goods and services by the Centre and States and apply GST in India by April 2017. GST represent to substitute all indirect taxes like sales and services tax to turn India into a common market. Implementation of GST will offer farewell to the different indirect taxes that are currently relevant in different states, thereby leading to a constant taxation across states.

India established a four-tier Goods and Services Tax(GST) structure which is ranging from 5%-28% to implement the biggest reform of indirect taxes. The four GST slabs are 5%, 12%, 18%, 28%. The fifth rate for gold and precious metals, which was earlier suggested at 4% will be determined later but is likely to be lower.
