Hugely popular ‘Karwachauth’, a ritual where wives fast for the health and longevity of their husband, is also getting adversely impacted by the newly implemented Goods and Services Tax (GST). This because, GST has hiked the prices of bangles which is one of the most sought after items bought in by women as part of festival preparation. It need be mentioned that wives usually buy a lot of fancy and beauty items on this festival and are feeling the heat of rising prices due to them being in the high GST bracket. Thus the sale of the shopkeepers also has come down.
