when there is a sale of goods between dealers of 2
different states, seller has o colect tax from the buyer at
prescribed rate. If the dealer isa registered dealer, then
assessee can sell at discounted rate of 2% if forms are
used as prescribed in CST Act, 1956

VAT is new term for sales tax. Now the dealer has to levy
tax at every stage of sale in intra-state sale unless goods
