The Goods and Services Tax, one of the biggest  reforms in India’s indirect tax structure, is  likely to revolutionise the Indian economy in  an unprecedented manner. As envisaged, GST  will propel GDP growth to newer heights,  lower income disparity and simplify decision  making of businesses. The GST rollout will be a  milestone for the nation as its implementation  will have a far-reaching impact on the Indian  economy. GST is a value-added tax levied at all points in  the supply chain with credit allowed for any  tax paid on input acquired for use in making  the supply. It would apply to both goods and  services in a comprehensive manner, with  exemptions restricted to a minimum.
