ABOUT GST


About GST in India.

Introducing GST in India is the dynamic step taken to integrate and consolidate all the Indirect taxes practiced in the country into the Single one. It is introduced with a view to promote “Ease of doing Business”. It has eliminated the major defects in the old regime of taxes such as double taxation and cascading effect, rather it also provides the seamless flow of credit. It is a consumption based destination tax rather than origin based taxation system. Goods and services are divided into five different tax slabs for collection of tax - 0%, 5%, 12%, 18% and 28%. However, petroleum products, alcoholic drinks, and electricity are not subject to tax under GST.

India adopted a dual GST model, meaning that taxation is administered by both the Union and state governments. Transactions made within a single state are levied with Central GST (CGST) by the Central Government and State GST (SGST) by the State governments. For inter-state transactions and imported goods or services, an Integrated GST (IGST) is levied by the Central Government. And under this model the Setting off of the GST Credit available to the business as in the following order:
