    The meaning attributed to this term in the GST law is a polished adoption of the definition Provided under the Service Tax law. Additionally, money as defined in the GST law includes any foreign currency as well. The significance of this term is that it is out of the scope of taxation under GST. Money would neither be goods nor services under the GST law. However, there is no exemption given to activities relating to the use of money or its conversion. So also, sale of money, say a coin collection set of 100 coins, would be chargeable to tax, as such coins are held for their numismatic value.
    It is also interesting to note that this term is no longer relevant for understanding whether a transaction is for consideration, as the meaning assigned to the term ‘consideration’ under the GST law may be in money or in another form.
