Indian stocks, not all but some, are expected to be affected adversely by GST implementation. Though goods and services tax (GST), may abolish the existing multiple tax structure yet the effect of GST seems to be negative in some sectors. It may uplift the service tax from current 14% to minimum of 18% which may negatively affect service sector, pharma, and wind power. This necessitates avoiding investing in shares of companies in these sectors. Idea Cellular, Suzlon Energy Ltd, Bharti Airtel, Alkem Laboratories and Cipla Ltd were screened to be negatively affected.
