The re-election of NDA alliance has raised hopes of Indian economy and markets gaining momentum. While not just GST most of the economic and financial reforms by Modi government helped Indian economy get stable, reduce inflation, supported entrepreneurship in India.
''India needs to work on skills and lowering the cost of capital. Introducing police & judicial reforms are of paramount importance. PM Modi emphasises doubling of farm income and housing for all as his personal passions, both of which have the power to lift India out of poverty. Also, the money waiting on the sidelines, whether domestic or international, will now have a great scope of heading to India - promising a higher growth rate for India,''Relli added.
The latest trends show BJP and its alliance partners leading in 343 seats out of 542 Lok Sabha seats in contention this time. However federal governments had lost the elections in Malaysia, New Zealand and Australia following the launch of the GST there. The popular anger in these countries was primarily due to the resulting high prices of goods and services after the tax reforms were implemented.
The Modi government launched GST on July 1, 2017. The biggest indirect tax regime that has resulted in lowering the cost of most goods and services, while making Indian economy globally competitive.
