Types of GST in India

There are mainly four types of GST (Goods and Service Taxes) in India, namely:

IGST - Integrated Goods & Service Tax
This GST tax is imposed on the inter-state transactions of goods and services and is also levied on imports. The Central government is in charge of IGST, which means it collects this tax and then distributes it to the states as agreed upon. Both, the central as well as state governments share the revenue generated from IGST. Essentially, the Integrated Goods and service tax was introduced so that all the states would have to deal with one entity i.e the Union government, instead of all the states individually. 

CGST - Central Goods & Service Tax 
Collected by the central government, Central Goods and Service Tax (CGST) is charged on the intra-state supply of products as well as services. It is supervised by the Central Goods and Service Act and has eradicated all the previous central taxes such as customs duty, service tax, CST, SAD, central excise duty, etc. The rate of CGST is the same as SGST (state goods and service tax) and the revenue goes to the central government. 

SGST - State Goods & Service Tax
SGST is charged for the sales of all products and services within the specified state. In this case, the State Government collects the revenues generated by this tax. Taxes such as VAT (value-added tax), entertainment tax, entry tax, cesses, surcharges, state sales tax, etc. have been replaced by one tax, namely SGST. 

UTGST - Union Territory Goods & Services
Union Territory Goods and service taxes are essentially levied upon all transactions on goods and services that are carried out in any of the Union Territories of India which include Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Chandigarh, Lakshadweep, Diu, Daman, etc. This is charged along with CGST and follows similar rules and regulations of CGST.
