Good news: Government has reduced GST on more than hundred itemsAfter the latest meeting of the GST Council, we have received a pleasant surprise. The Government has reduced GST on more than a hundred items which are commonly used by common people. 0% tax has been levied on sanitary napkins, fortified milk, rakhis (without gold or silver), stone idols, marble, wood, materials for broomstick, etc.
Not only that, the GST has been reduced on refrigerators, washing machines, juicers, perfumes, television sets, etc. from 28% to 18%. The GST in fuel cell vehicles has been reduced from 28% to 12% only.
Although some people are saying that this announcement is a pre-poll sop by the Government, the common people will be very happy by the reduction of GST on these common people's items.
