Mann Ki Baat: PM Modi terms GST as the victory of honesty
New Delhi: As the Goods and Services Tax (GST) reform is set to complete one year in July, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday dubbed the event as 'the victory of honesty'.
"GST is to complete one year. People's 'One Nation, One Tax' dream has now been changed into reality today. For this, I gives credit to the states," said the Prime Minister.
"GST is the best example of cooperative federalism. As all the states took a collective decision for the welfare of the country, such a big tax reform could be delivered," Modi said in his 'Mann ki Baat' speech.

The Prime Minister said there were no checkposts now and the inflow and outflow of products had increased because of the GST.
"GST not only helped in saving time it also helped in the field on logistic." '
