GST Rumors around Credit Card Usage

There have been rumors being circulated that payments made using credit cards or other electronic modes of payment would result in double taxation under the newly-launched Goods and Services Tax. However, this is not correct since this tax is not based on the transaction, it is applied on the fees, or the merchant discount rate (MDR) that the merchant is charged by the bank. Since merchants are not allowed to pass on the MDR to the customer, any credit card transaction is not charged to the cardholder. 

For the customer there is no change as the merchant discount rate is not allowed to be passed on. For banks the difference is that they will now get input tax credit under GST. In the financial sector the only real impact of the imposition of GST is the three percentage point increase in tax.

Terms like NAV or Net Asset Value and dividend do not always mean what a new investor would assume they do. A high or low fund NAV is not something that is likely to affect the returns you get on your invested corpus.
