GST is one indirect tax for the whole nation, which will make India one unified common market. In Short, it can be said in one line "One India, One Tax".

GST is a single tax on the supply of goods and services, right from the manufacturer to the consumer. Credits of input taxes paid at each stage will be available in the subsequent stage of value addition, which makes GST essentially a tax only on value addition at each stage.
