India’s biggest indirect tax reform in the form of Goods and Services Tax (GST) will complete 2 years this July.

First introduced on July 1, 2017, the comprehensive dual GST replaced many Indirect Taxes in India and transformed India into “one nation, one Tax”.

To make this tax reform more flexible and consumer-friendly, the GST Council has till date held 35 meetings wherein important decisions have been taken and recommendations have been provided to the government on issues like reducing compliance burden for taxpayers, providing sector specific relief measures, etc.
