Tax Rates Before And After GST

Rates for most items and services under the Goods and Services Tax have been finalised in the two-day meeting of the GST Council that ended on Friday. While the rates on key daily use items like sugar, tea and hair oil have come down, they have been increased for luxury and sin products. Eating out in a five-star restaurant will be taxed at the highest bracket.
