Goods and Services Tax (GST) was one of the India’s most bold reforms. We have seen little hiccups in the execution, but it has come a long way.The Goods and Services Tax (GST) has completed one year on July 1.
GST was one of the biggest steps in the direction of formalisation of the Indian economy. As we all know, India had an economy which was considered as a black economy but because of GST and demonetisation, it has reduced at quite a high rate.
Can we call GST a runaway success? Experts say it is too early to call it one right now. Over the course of time, many companies, especially in the organised market, are likely to gain the most.
Which Sectors Are Likely To Benefit The Most Going Forward?
The benefits of GST will only be realised over a period of time if petroleum products are brought under the GST ambit. Under the current GST structure, experts see consumer firms benefiting the most.
The major beneficiary of this trend would be: On the product side: jewellery, plywood, apparels, dairy, luggage, air coolers and confectionary manufacturers. On the services side: hospitals, diagnostics, contract staffing, retails, hotels, SME credit and logistics companies.”
“Consumer firms will benefit the most as they pass on benefits of GST to consumers. Volumes will also increase. From our coverage V-Mart Retail, Britannia Industries and Bata India are beneficiaries of GST rollout. Apar Industries is a beneficiary on account of the tax rate.”
