On 1 July 2017, Goods and Services Tax (GST) became a reality. The government hailed it as the biggest tax reform of independent India which would herald a new freedom for the nation and unify it with 'One Nation One Tax'. Some of the claims made by the government were that GST would bring about ease of doing business; increase tax collection; lower inflation; increase GDP On 1 July 2017, Goods and Services Tax (GST) became a reality. The government hailed it as the biggest tax reform of independent India which would herald a new freedom for the nation and unify it with 'One Nation One Tax'. Some of the claims made by the government were that GST would bring about ease of doing business; increase tax collection; lower inflation; increase GDP growth by 1-2 per cent; and check the black economy. More than a year later, we have more questions than answers. Why did the economy slow down? Is the government likely to collect more taxes? Why have prices continued to rise? Why has Malaysia withdrawn GST? Turns out that problems with GST are both transitional and structural. To correct for these there have been a few hundred notifications and orders from the government which have added to the confusion. In this book, well-known economist Arun Kumar explains the reality behind GST. Known for not pulling any punches, the author explains why GST is a double-edged sword for the common man, why it will increase inequality across sectors and regions, why it will hurt small businesses-everything the government does not want you to know.

    Sanjay Banerjee

    The author, an acknowledged expert on Public Finance and Black Economy (also teaches at JNU) explains the structure of Public Finances as they relate to the Indian Economy and the GST as implemented. Simple and easy to comprehend - ideal book for a layperson like me! He explains the systemic defects as well as his suggested solution is also provided in the final chapter.

    The book tends to get technical at times and lacks structure. However, it is a good read for people with some basic knowledge of economics as well as indirect taxes.
