The GST tax slab has been divided into four categories and these are 5%, 12%, 18%, 28%. The point to be noted about GST is this particular tax can be levied on all products except petroleum, alcohol, and so on.

Now, you can have a look at CGST, IGST, and SGST. 

  • CGST- CGST or Central GST is a tax levied on the intrastate supply of goods and services. Both the Central Government and State Government agree to divide the tax collection and share the revenue in equal ways. 

Section 8 of the GST Act mentions that tax can be levied on the intrastate supply of goods and services without any problem but the tax cannot be more than 14%.

  • SGST- SGST or State GST falls under SGST Act 2017. SGST is levied by the State Government. After SGST is collected, it is deposited on the accounts of the State Government.
    The special feature of SGST is each state of India has its own SGST rule. SGST is not applicable if the turnover per annum is not up to the prescribed limit.
  • IGST- The IGST or Integrated GST is collected and equally divided between Central Government and State Government. IGST is applicable for both the export and import from India.
    The one point to be noticed for IGST is the state which is importing products is bound to avail of the IGST tax benefits.
