GST What it means to me and my family

It's July 1st, and the anxiety brewing in Gunjan's mind (far, far bigger than the prep required before her children commence school after the summer hols) is about the commencement of the Goods and Services Tax (GST). To her rescue comes her husband, who is a senior business journalist for a leading digital company. He tells her this: • GST will not affect the price of her favourite night cream • GST will not impact the price of chips, chocolates and icecreams (that their two daughters thrive on!) but the quantities (or technically, weight) may reduce in the same pack! • With the GST, cereals will be cheaper and so will soaps, hair oils and toothpaste • Biscuits are likely to get cheaper too • Milk price to stay the same but milk powder and baby food items may become cheaper • And there's more GST info packed into this blog... Want to know more? Tune into the chat between Gunjan and her husband, right now - they decode and simplify GST for you and give you just the info you've been looking for...

Thanks all. I am glad you all found it informative. I am sure you are realizing the new system is bringing more transparency into the system. As I write this, some of you would have also noticed that a few items have become cheaper. For example, small cars are costing less now. So are some of the toiletries. Just hoping, GST achieves its purpose.
