Beating GST lies in our nature

Since its inception, the new tax regime abbreviation of the Goods & Services Tax has pulled the attention of many. The finance minister Arun Jaitley has been busy in clearing up its benefits. Even the elections were contested on this subject.

Upon the traders’ objections, various modifications have been brought yet they did not look wholly satisfied. The government kept on reducing the load of the tax imposed through its different slabs.

There is once again an indication of a drop in taxing of as many as 70 items. The GST is by now complicated, time-consuming, and emotionally draining. Sorrowfully, the businessmen and traders, to be fair have picked to tack on more simplified rules to balance for their grievances and general indifference towards the taxes.

The government has certainly come forward in lessening their prevailing concern rather than giving up the ghost. It is all about giving a fair measure.

Everyone right from the common man to the politicians has been describing it in their nerve-racking styles. The Congress Party president Rahul Gandhi explained it as Gabbar Singh Tax. In a recent debate on the television debate, the BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra linked it with the name of one Samajwadi Party leader Ghan Shyam Tiwari. The wives during their altercation with their hubbies were repeatedly using it as Galti Sirf Tumhari.

So far the GST has been used in various ways and still there are emanating different definitions from people. Taking inspiration from them one filmdom personality Ram Gopal Verma also jumped into this chase and thought it fit to title his film similar to the word GST as God, Sex & Truth questioning the way the society perceives the women and their sexual needs.

The people seem confident in the government’s ability to protect and secure their future in a welfare state.
