    please tell me GST rule for goods sales within state for exports. (Previously it covers in VAT15). now what is new rule

  2. T. NAGARAJAN says:


    Welcoming the new patron of Tax.

    GST will be divided into two. One for Central and the other is for State.

    The same is also adapted earlier as Excise & VAT.

    Invoicing the Tax and taking credit is burden to the common people.

    There is no price reduction on that.

    Uniformly .impose 2% or 3% without taking any credit will go to Central and may be distributed.

    This is only suggestion.
