People of India from today wake up to a new beginning. entire nation will be paying one tax in form of GST , Goods and Services Tax which will change not only the economy of the country but also the economy,financial situation of the individuals and business establishments. 

Now here is what GST has got in store for the common man. GST will be a four-tiered tax system with applicable tax slabs of 5 per cent, 12 per cent, 18 per cent and 28 per cent.

GST will help the government to keep a tab on tax evaders. The Goods and Services Tax Network (GSTN) will allot specific numbers to all traders and manufacturers registering themselves with the system. Like the PAN, these numbers will help the government keep a tab on these traders and the tax returns they file.

Essential goods like  salt, primary produce, flour, milk, eggs, tea, coffee, jaggery, curd, fish, chicken, buttermilk,natural honey, fresh fruits, lassi, unpacked paneer, fresh vegetables, fruits, flour, besan, maida, vegetable oil, sindoor, prasad, contraceptives, bread, bindi, stamp, judicial documents, printed books, bangles, and handloom products are exempted from GST.
