The Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council earlier this year announced a hike in the rate of tax on mobile phones. The revision was supposed to come in effect from April 1, after which 18 per cent GST would be levied on mobile phones instead of 12 per cent. Due to this many brands including Xiaomi, Apple, Samsung and OnePlus were seen increasing the price of their phones. Amidst the price increase, a country-wide lockdown was implemented due to the COVID-19 pandemic, during which many brands were seen dropping the prices of their devices. Here we will be taking a look at all of the phones that have either seen a price increase or decrease in recent times.
