"Don't Let Science Suffer": Rahul Gandhi On Scientific Equipment GST Hike

Rahul Gandhi, Congress leader, attacked Monday the government for increasing GST rates on scientific equipment. He said that “don’t allow science to suffer because Gabbar Singh Tax.”

He posted on Facebook that scientific advances are the key to any nation’s success.

He said that the pattern of the BJP government’s reduction of funding for scientific research is a worrying sign for India’s research system.

He stated that the government was now increasing GST rates on scientific instruments from 5%-18%, demonstrating its stupidity and further decreasing funds and resources for laboratories involved in research across the country.
