GST Mobile Apps: Top 5 Android and iOS Apps

GST stands for Good and Service Tax. Of course, you know that! What you don’t know is how it will affect your and my day to day life.

If you are not a salaried person yet, don’t think that GST won’t affect you. Almost all of your outings will now be costlier. The Government has increased the tax for luxury items.
