Ladies and gentlemen boys and girls welcome back to finance to your friend and finance guru vishal tucker is back again with interesting and amazing update we have heard that government has reduced gst on real estate from 12% to 5% whoa whooping 7% reduction in gst so does it mean is it the right time to go and buy a house when let’s analyze so let’s first understand

What really was gst on real estate till date we understood that a builder would give you a flag at let’s say 100 on which he would charge you 20% gst of course he is going to deduct the rebate for land construction and other things and who charge you the gst on the value addition done by him as against that he was able to claim input tax credit for all the raw
