    Thank you sir,
    one question : What would be the impact of GST implementation on Textile Industries?

    1. Ruhi

      If GST is implemented on Ready made Garments then they will become costly.
      Currently there is No tax on Garments. Only tax is imposed on “Branded and Costly” Garments.
