FM has demonstrated the in-principle acceptance for moving towards unified GST by standardising the tax rates across the spectrum of services.  The rationalisation of tax slabs for non corporate income taxes is also a step towards the implementation of Direct Taxes Code. However the excise duty increases and Service tax rate increase would mean higher costs for the industry. The pill could have been sweetened by a reduction in corporate tax rates which did not happen.-Ashutosh Prabhudesai, Controller & Director Finance, Fujitsu Consulting India
