A proposal is also pending under the course committee to add GST as a separate subject of study in the class 12th syllabus. If a consensus is reached, GST will be added in the commerce stream syllabus of UP Board.

Pradeep Tripathi, the principal of Madhav Gyan Kendra Intermediate College in Naini says, “The new curriculum has been notified by the UP Board and GST has been made part of it. This is a welcome move as GST is now in effect and knowledge of it is important for the students. This inclusion will introduce the Hindi heartland state's students to the latest tax early. With GST set to be included in college/varsity level as well, early knowledge is will make students comfortable with this new tax system governing their lives.”
