10/06/2010 CGST replaces Excise and Service Tax

CGST replaces Excise and Service Tax is false.

Excise duty is a tax on manufacture of goods.

The concept of levy of tax on manufacture disappears. CGST is a tax on every sale of goods and supply of service.

It would be correct to say that CGST subsumes Excise Duty and Service tax.
