Now either they are total fools and ignorant about their jobs, or they fool you with lies and use the immense number of followers they have to spread their propaganda. A lot has been written about TOI and its misleading reporting of events. People have gone down to the level of calling it as TOILET News Paper.
It is hard to believe that a senior Journalist like Vishwa Mohan from TOI does not know the basic thing about GST. The GST tax for any category, for ex: for 18% category, will be divided into 9% for CGST and 9% for SGST. CGST+ SGST= GST AND THAT MAKES IT 18%.
Now see, how Vishwa Mohan tried to fool you. The tagline of GST bill is “One Nation One Tax”. By showing a Bill with CGST and SGST, Vishwa Mohan tried to show that there are two taxes applied and the theory of “One Nation, One Tax” is a hoax.
Now, in the above Bill, CGST is 44.91 with 9% of the Total bill and same is with SGST. So, the total GST is 18%. And that is the whole story which makes people fool.
TOI shame on your reporting.
