How many types of GST will be levied on different kinds of supply of goods or services?

GST is a dual levy to be simultaneously levied by both Centre and State. On every supply within a State/ Union Territory without legislature (intra-State supply), GST levied will have two components – Central Tax and State Tax/ Union Territory Tax popularly called CGST and SGST/UTGST. On every supply across States (inter-State), Integrated Tax popularly called IGST will be levied. The rate of CGST and SGST/UTGST would be equal. IGST would be levied at a rate equal to the sum total of CGST and SGST/UTGST.
