GST was the major Indirect Tax reform that has happened from the date of Independence. The history of GST dates back from the year 2003. It was first suggested by Kelkar Task Force on Indirect Taxes in the year 2003 based on VAT principle. A proposal was made by Mr. P Chidambaram in the budget speech for the financial year 2006-07, but due to various hurdles and difficulties faced from the opposition leaders in parliament sessions in implementation, finally GST was implemented in the year 2016-17 by subsuming most of the Indirect Taxes and has got implemented on July 1, 2017. GST subsumed most of the Indirect Taxes levied prevailing in India. The subsumed Indirect Taxes were provided below
