As per reports, the survey of over 3.6 lakh people across the country found that two Telugu speaking states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana have the highest awareness on the GST with over 64 per cent of population knowing about it.
According to the survey, people in Tamil Nadu had the lowest awareness level.
Commenting on the issue, Way2Online said, “Following an extensive research, the report concludes that less than half the population of India; 45 per cent to be precise, is aware of the new tax system. The remaining 55 per cent is unaware of what GST is.”
As per reports, Way2Online, a local language short news application, conducted this survey between June 26-30 with over 3,60,000 participants across the country.
The new tax regime, which became effective from July 1, aims to put an end to number of indirect taxes levied on goods and services and stop duplication of taxes over a product.
