Q.1 Q.1 Q.1 Q.1 Q.1 Goods and Services Tax (GST) is an indirect tax introduced in India in 2017 that is
imposed on the supply of goods and services, and it subsumes all indirect taxes except
few. It is a destination-based tax imposed on goods and services used, and it is not
imposed at the point of origin from where goods come. GST also has a few components
specific to state governments, central government and Union Territories (UTs).
Which one of the following statements can be inferred from the given passage?
(a) GST is imposed on the production of goods and services.
(b) GST does not have a component specific to UT.
(c) GST is imposed at the point of usage of goods and services.
(d) GST includes all indirect taxes.
Ans. Ans. Ans. Ans. Ans. (c) (c) (c) (c) (c)
According to passage GST is imposed on the supply of goods and services hence
option (a) is incorrect which states that GST is imposed on production of goods and
services.
In the passage it is mentioned that GST has a two components specific to UTs. So
option (b) is incorrect.
Passage states that GST is a destination based tax which means it is imposed at the
point of usage of goods and services. Hence (c) is correct.
Option (d) says GST includes all indirect taxes but as per passage it subsumes all
indirect taxes except few except few except few except few except few.
