The government on Friday launched an app called GST Rate Finder– which as the name suggests is your ready reckoner for all the tax rates that are to be levied under the GST (Goods and Services Tax) regime. The app has been developed by the Central Board of Excise and Custom (CBEC).
“First app of its kind which would be a ready reckoner for public, for customers, for consumers, traders, students, anyone who wishes to have very handily (GST) rates available. So, if you are in a market, a restaurant or anywhere you can easily check what the (GST) rate is,” CBEC chairperson Vanaja Sarna said.
The app is currently available on the Android platform, but will soon be made available for Apple’s
iOS users as well, the Finance Ministry said. The rates can also be accessed from the CBEC GST website.
According to the Finance Ministry, once the GST Rate Finder app has been downloaded it can be used in offline mode as well
