Bhagat singh: The taxation slab of many items which will come in 12% and 18%,which will effectively make it 24% and 36%,after cgst and sgst,will give room for non invoicing of goods and defeat the very purpose of rationalising the tax rates,The strangest thing is Luxury goods like Sarees,,dress materials,and other shirting and suiting materials,,which cost upwards from rs.1000/- and go upto a few lakhs,,are totally expempt from taxes,and they also dont have any restrictions as MRP etc,Were as basic itmes are taxed heavily and have so many rules and rgulations to follow,,BcoZ of the irrational taxation people avoid invoicing and with Help at every level business without documents is as smooth and totally risk free,
