Yesterday marked a big step towards rolling out a unified goods and services tax (GST) with the Centre and states agreeing on a four-slab structure –5, 12, 18 and 28 percent—along with a cess on luxury and `sin’ goods such as tobacco products and luxury cars. This is slightly different from what the Centre had proposed last month. The Centre had proposed a four-tired rate system–6, 12, 18 and 26 percent—along with a 4% levy on gold. Around 50% of the items in the retail inflation basket, primarily food items, will be kept out of GST and there will be a zero tax on such items.  A lower tax slab of 5% is proposed for those essential commodities on which no excise duty is levied at present by the centre but a 5% value-added tax is levied by the states. There will two standard rates of 12% and 18% that will be applicable to a majority of the taxable goods.
