GST for the Layman by Apeksha Solanki arms you with the fundamentals to make you a smarter, well informed consumer with a better control on your finances.
It has now been two years since GST – a much discussed taxation reform was implemented in India.
At the time of its launch, there were multiple concerns around its impact on small businesses and entrepreneurs. While the government has, since, streamlined the requirements and processes around this historical tax restructuring, those unfamiliar with the new tax regime still have questions as to how it impacts them.
Can one avoid the payment of GST while buying a house?
Is GST to be paid on discounts applied to the MRPs of products?
Can restaurants still charge VAT?
Is GST applicable to a new e-commerce venture?
How does a student encounter GST?
In her book GST for the Layman: How It Impacts Your Daily Life, Apeksha Solanki answers these questions and more similar daily-life encounters to help you understand GST better.
Split into two parts, the first part of the book outlines the basics of GST: how it differs from the previous taxation system, its evolution, structure, and application. It then explains the GST Network, compliance requirements, as well as assessment and audit processes. This is wrapped up with a comparison of pros and cons based on public opinion of the tax reform.
In the second part, the author summarises the impact of GST Law on different areas – small businesses, banking/insurance/financial sectors, real estate, salaried employees, start-ups, students, even household expenses.
The book has an interactive dialogue format, the concepts explained in simple terms with illustrations and examples, making it comprehensible for those without a background in Economics or Finance. The author also includes a few DIY tips to assist new users in registration, fulfilling compliances, and making informed decisions.
As with any law in India, the Government continues to update and revise requirements to the GST Law. The book helpfully directs you to the relevant sources to keep abreast of these changes.
Whether you are building a business, are an entrepreneur, or simply heading out to shop and have a meal, it is important to understand how and where GST is applicable to you. This book arms you with the fundamentals of this tax system to make you a smarter, well informed consumer with a better control on your finances. After all, isn’t a rupee saved a rupee earned?

Mostly Normal is a book of innocence, longing, filial love, angst and acceptance, encapsulating a gamut of human emotions within its lightweight edifice. The book touches the human heart and will stay with you.
Some books enthral you till the last page, and then there are those that you stop reading after turning a few pages. Some books are a one-time read, while you carry some books with you long after you have read them. Then, once in a while, a book hits you so close to home that you find it difficult to slot into any category.
I will put Priyadeep Kaur’s Mostly Normal (BookSoul Reads, 2022) in this last bracket.
At a little less than hundred pages, Mostly Normal is a testimony of the power of words to inspire, irrespective of their length.
Most women do not get to live their lives the way they want, on their own terms. So why should they be tied down in their old age?
Every morning, while dropping the kids at the bus stop, I find a grandfather waiting with his granddaughter. I see him again when I fetch the kids. This has been the pattern for the last few years.
He is seen actively participating in his granddaughter’s activities, from morning and evening walks to attending her parent-teachers meeting, sending her for extracurricular activities to even planning her birthday party. He is admired by all. He is appreciated for making himself useful in his old age. People rave that the doting grandfather is doing his duty towards his children and grandchildren. The much-admired grandfather is also a widower, having lost his wife years ago to chronic disease. It’s also to be noted that both his son and daughter-in-law are working parents.
Every day, the onlookers appreciate his sense of duty and dedication. They say that this is how the elderly should keep themselves occupied. They should bring up their grandchildren while their children go off to work.
