  • A new article (246A) would be introduced that states: "Parliament and the legislature of every state will have power to make laws with respect to goods and services tax imposed by the Union or the State" GST is a Single umbrella tax. There are few taxes that have been replaced by GST, hence it will encapsulate the following indirect taxes (Whether levied by Centre Government/State Government:

    Taxes imposed by Union.
    Central Excise Duty.
    Additional Excise Duty.
    ervice Tax.
    Additional Duty on Customs(NOT Customs duty) also known as CVD.
    Customs duty is that which is levied on any kind of Import and export, this will continue to exist even after GST.

    Normally 2 editions per year. One on Jan/Feb ending other on May/June ending.
    It is useful to get hold of Jan/Feb editiion of 2017 as pre is in Jun. If not, at least get hold of Jun 2016 edition.
    UPSC 2016 has asked Environment questions directly from it like TEEB, GIAHS etc atlest topics were known and we can surf them online.
    These were only updated only in/after Jun 2015 editions.
    Same goes with environment funds.
    All other like species, conventions, protocols, meets etc can be read from wiki, paper and any current affair magazine.
