This increased tax rate on smartphones will pose a serious danger in the economy of the country which is already is affected and getting the revenue by imposing more taxes on smartphones will affect the whole industry and all those attached to it.

Apart from Realme, Xiaomi, and Oppo Apple and Samsung are also rumored to increase the smartphone prices by 5% to balance the effects of the new GST rate. Surely, the new increased GST rate will pose a negative impact on buyers and will make devices even more costly which in fact brings a huge impact on the fast-paced digital revolution in India.
