Taxes for most items under the Goods and Services Tax (GST) have been finalised. While the rates on daily use items like sugar, tea and hair oil have come down, but they have been an increase for luxury, smoke and drink products. Eating out at a five star restaurant will be taxed at the highest bracket. GST is going to impact every Indian as prices of large number of goods and services are going to change. GST Council has fixed the tax rates for 1,211 items, keeping a majority of these in the 18% slab. Below is a comprehensive list of the goods and services which will become cheaper from July 1st.
