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