country as well as will be benefited to the consumers, as maximum rate of GST is
predetermined. It will also help to avoid the multiple taxation, processes, tax evasion
etc. Government proposed Central GST and States GST. CGST will subsume central
excise duty, excess central excise duty, service tax, excess custom duty and special

local bodies),sale tax which is imposed by Centre Government and collected by states,
purchase tax, luxury tax and lottery tax and more significantly octroi which is a major
source of revenue of the Municipal Corporations. Already there is vertical imbalance
