With supermarkets in Mumbai offering lucrative discounts on groceries and staples, just hours after the Goods and Services Tax (GST) was rolled out at midnight on Friday, here’s a look at how people took advantage of the best deals in town:
Even if luxury items will now attract the 28% tax, high-end luxury malls are hoping to attract customers with offers of free hotel stays, salon services, drinks and discount vouchers.
Restauranteurs in the city hoped prices would go down marginally, in the absence of a separate service tax and value added tax (VAT).
The prices of movie tickets have also reduced, which makes this a good time to catch the latest movie over the weekend.
