Goods and repair Tax (GST) is a revenue enhancement levied in India on the sale of products and services. Goods and services are divided into five tax slabs for collection of tax - 0%, 5%, 12%, 18% and 28%. Petroleum products and alcoholic drinks are taxed separately by the individual state governments. there's a special rate of 0.25% on rough precious and semi-precious stones and three on gold. additionally, a cess of twenty-two or other rates on top of 28% GST applies on few items like aerated drinks, luxury cars and tobacco products.

The tax came into effect from July I, 2017 through the implementation of 1 Hundred and amendment of the Constitution of India by the Modi government. The tax replaced existing multiple cascading taxes levied by the central and state governments. The tax rates, rules and regulations are governed by the products and Services Tax Council which comprises finance ministers of center and every one the states. GST simplified a slew of indirect taxes with a unified tax and is therefore expected to dramatically reshape the country's 2.4 trillion-dollar economy.

The differential multiple tax regime across sectors of production ends up in distortions in allocation of resources thus introducing inefficiencies within the sectors of domestic production. When indirect taxes paid by the manufacturing firms get off sets under state VAT and CENVAT, the producers do not receive full off sets particularly at the state level. The multiplicity of taxes further adds the problem in getting full offsets.
Add to this, the dearth of full offsets taxes loaded on the fob export prices. The export competitiveness gets negatively impacted even further. Efficient allocation of productive resources and providing full tax offsets is anticipated to lead to gains for GDP, returns to the factors of production and export of the economy
