    The GST Council has made a good effort at ensuring that essential items and those products that are consumed in large amounts are kept away from the Goods and Services Tax. In fact, these are the items with Zero GST on them.

    What is the Goods and Services Tax?

    Goods and Services Tax came into effect from July 1, 2017 and is a one nation tax that is largely a destination tax. It subsumed the various taxes like excise, sales tax and valued added tax that existed, While there have been some initial hiccups in the implementation of the same, most traders expect things to be streamlined in due course.

    There are various tax slabs under the GST at the moment. These can keep changing more often. However, generally speaking items like luxury cars, tobacco, and aerated drinks attract the highest amount of goods and services tax at the moment.

    The GST council recently reduced the GST on some items.
