India has a well structured tax system wherein power to levy taxes are clearly demarcated by the constitution between the Central Government, the State Governments and local bodies. The taxes in India can broadly be classified into Direct Taxation and Indirect Taxation. Some of the major taxes levied by the Central Government are as classified below:

  • Direct taxation
    • Income Tax
    • Wealth Tax
  • Indirect Taxation
    • Customs Duties
    • Central Excise
    • Service Tax

Recently, to make the Indian taxation system more dynamic in terms of effective administration, efficient tax collection and to reduce the cascading effect of taxes, it is proposed to introduce Goods and Services Tax (GST) which would be a comprehensive tax on the supply of goods and services.
