  3. the gst proccess must be accessible not only to the urban but also to the rural tribe since the taxes must not only be paid by the urban citizens but also by the rural citizens.the fact that only one tax will be charged by the whole country is commendable and easy.it should improve the pace of productions,it will give the financial security to whole nation,it will make the citizens of india less venerable to the rapid changes,it will place india on the international frontfoot,the fact that the whole world depends on its economy so I feel that one tax GST will bring much unity in the world order,it may also be the fact that it will improve the civilisation .may be that more people will be able to get the good amount of lower and higher order needs of themselves.which is very important.the GST process will definitely succeed in india since it is quiet scientific,easy,unified,goodwill,practical,internationlly approved,commendable,agreed upon by every citizen of india,agreed upon by every state of indian federal,democratic,republic governments of india.agreed upon by every race ,caste,religion,professions,.so it will benefit the future of the india.the fact that india will definitely face the heavy competitions with the nations of the world,so this GST will definitely provide the international platform to INDIA ,there by it will definitely bridge the gap between the technical coefficients,variables,concepts,laws,principles, ideologies,…… related to economy,commerce,managements,bankings,finances………….so it will bring the change and more importantly the change for improvements.
