Indians are known for celebrating every small incident with joy and excitement. But this time, it just went to a different level alltogether. In a one of a kind event, a new born child in Rajasthan has been named GST after the final implementation of Goods and service tax in India after 17 years.
The New mother in Rajasthan decided to name her child GST after the child was born on 12:02 on 1st of July –‘’the historic day of GST’’ To commemorate the mega launch of GST-India in one single tax.
After the news went viral on social media, many wishes and blessings met the new born baby ‘GST’ through twitter and facebook. Even the Rajasthan Chief Minister, Vasundhara Raje tweeted for the baby and conveyed her warm wishes.
This is not the first time in India when children have been named after such new reforms, there are different places in India where the ideas and customs have always surprised people across the globe. There are parents who have named their kids after the government post, influenced by the reputation and dignity of officials. Kids who never visited school carry names like SP, Hawaldar, and Magistrate. A passionate fan of Indian national congress named his family members after the name of Sonia, Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi.
