GST and Its Aftermath: Is Consumer Really the King? takes a close look at the ongoing debate on the indirect tax reform initiative in India. It explains in simple, layperson parlance the complex structure of indirect taxation in India—both in the past and in the present—and sheds light on the various dimensions of the tax system and how it affects all our lives. This thought-provoking assessment of GST presents the ideas and concepts that gave birth to this new system of taxation and discusses its immediate implications on the Indian economy. 

Just as GST is meant to empower consumers, this book is designed to empower citizens!
Another Freedom at Midnight
At the End of a Long Journey
Insights from the Travails of Other Pioneers
Overcoming Hurdles and Challenges
Good Bye to Tax Terrorism
Voice of the People

Keeps the readers intrigued all through. The language is lucid and to the point…in upholding the virtues of GST, objectivity is diluted which is perhaps the most visible flaws of this book.
