It will first be executed for smaller payments and later be applied for bigger transactions. In order to digitise the economy and give impetus to it, the government has planned to include offers, discounts and cashbacks. GST council has also created a pilot project to be regulated at the state and central level. 

This move will benefit the GST council as the GST can be directly deducted from the transaction and there will be no hope for any fraudulent activity.
