But it is a must and unavoidable for both the Government and its citizens to have a fair and healthy environment to create the welfare of the Nation. In order to avoid double taxation, India adopted GST in 2006 to make a single tax mechanism. However, it is much more complicated to understand. The Book by Prof. V.
