You all are in sheltered confined of the University, perhaps not sensing the waves of change, the Tsunami of change, a positive Tsunami. GST is one of them, it is a tax, which will remove the cascading burden of tax, right from the beginning of purchasing. It will remove the duplication and transform the way of transaction.
