Is your Investment GST Compliant?

No, I did not mean the Goods & Services Tax introduced recently in India. For any successful wealth creation journey, there are three vital elements that one must address. GOALS: what is the objective of investing? The more clear and powerful the goal is, the more likely that your investment plan will be successful.
