The father of the baby girl, Jagdish Prasad, said:

The day Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced Goods and Service Tax (GST) reform as a tax revolution on July 1, my daughter was born. So I could not hold my excitement and named her GST to make this day a memorable one.



Prasad, who is a carpenter by profession, believed that this new tax reform is very important for the nation and seems to have taken this as an inspiration for his child’s name.

 

Ever since the birth of the girl, villagers from far and wide have been visiting her house to see the baby and find out who ‘GST’ is. The proud parents believe that the girl has brought them fame and that because of her they are being noticed in the village.
