19/04/2018 No Major Fall in Property Prices Post - GST Rollout
Goods and service tax(GST) was expected to bring down housing prices but hasn't, a joint report by consultants.

The tax reform which is also referred to as Good and Simple Tax, is aimed at reducing the final prices for the consumer, but this will depend on the market forces and the effectiveness of the measures that the government takes from an anti-profiteering perspective. It also pointed to considerable lack of clarity and awareness not just among developers, tax payers and buyers, but also among tax officials.
