The Economy Today

Considering that the other hand goods sector has become an important part of the economy today and has been growing, it is important to research the proposed GST Law that would affect the industry. One would argue how do a sale of second-hand things be redeemed as the Government has already collected the tax from the seller in the other places like ozmobiles, is the end customer at the time of purchasing. Even the Constitution of India, vide Article 246 and 246A, empowers the States and the Union to make laws with regard to any issues.


Entry 92A of Union list in Schedule VII and Entrance 54 of State list cite”taxation to the sale or purchase of goods besides newspapers”. Article 366(12) of this Constitution defines goods as”goods includes all products, materials and posts”. The GST Acts / principles do not define second-hand goods. Also second-hand goods have been defined by none of the current laws State VAT Laws, including Excise. Second-hand products, since not specifically excluded in the definition, are all included in the definition of products as it pertains to goods, and the GST law shall apply to second-hand goods in precisely exactly the identical fashion.
