Definitely not, arbitrariness decide according to the provisions of law.
All the rates levied by GST council was constitutionally valid as the power given to the GST Council was under the constitution only.

So Something Arbitrary for you does not means that the act was arbitrary the rates even if arbitrary to you then also you cannot do anything just to comply with it
