Examining the degree to which GST is perceived is the study’s major goal. 200 questionnaires were used to perform the main survey, and 153 participants answered them. Utilizing a virtual platform, data were gathered (Monkey survey and Google form). When the assumptions (Hypothesis) were put to the test, the majority of respondents (85.50%) accepted the lower-rate GST (<10%). While several nations around the world have implemented the GST at a lower rate, Government of India has directly implemented at the highest rate (18 –28%), which has had a major long-term impact on the Indian economy (R2=0.93, P = 0.01). The majority of respondents (19.61%) were in favour of VAT, while only (3.27%) were in favour of GST. At the 1% level of significance, it was concluded that none of the assertions were related to either GST or VAT (Z= 4.49, P=0.001). Both manufacturers and consumers will be hamper if the price of the goods and services tax is continually raised.
