GST Rate list 2017 in Hindi

1# इन तीन चीजों पर टैक्स नहीं

गेहूं-चावल समेत अनाज, दूध और दही को GST के दायरे से बाहर रखा गया है। कुछ राज्यों में इन चीजों पर VAT लगता है। 1 जुलाई से GST लागू होने के बाद ये चीजें सस्ती हो जाएंगी।

2# बिजली होगी सस्ती

कोयले पर अभी 11.69% टैक्स लगता है। लेकिन, GST आने पर यह टैक्स सिर्फ 5% लगेगा। इससे कई राज्यों में बिजली का टैरिफ कम होने की उम्मीद है।

3# रोजमर्रा की ये चीजें होंगी सस्ती

साबुन, टूथपेस्ट और हेयर ऑयल जैसी चीजें 18% टैक्स स्लैब के दायरे में आएंगी। इन चीजों पर अभी तक 22-24% तक टैक्स लगता है।

4# छोटी कारें सस्ती, लग्जरी गाड़ियों पर लगेगा सेस

  • कारों को 28% के स्लैब में रखा गया है। अभी कारों पर 30-32% टैक्स लगता है। GST आने के बाद छोटी कारों पर 28% टैक्स और 1% सेस। इस तरह कुल टैक्स 29% हो जाएगा, जो अभी के मुकाबले कम ही रहेगा।
  • मीडियम सेगमेंट की कारों पर 28% टैक्स के अलावा 3% सेस और लग्जरी कारों पर 15% सेस लगेगा। इससे लग्जरी कारों के महंगे होने के आसार हैं।

5# इन आइटम्स पर असर नहीं

रोजाना इस्तेमाल में आने वाले आइटम्स जैसे चाय, कॉफी (इंस्टेंट नहीं), चीनी को 5% टैक्स के स्लैब में रखा गया है। पहले भी इन पर करीब इतना ही टैक्स लगता था। इसलिए इन पर कोई असर पड़ने के आसार नहीं हैं।

6# बाकी आइटम्स पर इस तरह लगेगा टैक्स

  • 1 जुलाई से मिठाई पर भी 5% टैक्स देना होगा।
  • एसी और फ्रिज को 28% के स्लैब में रखा गया है।
  • लाइफ सेविंग ड्रग्स को सबसे कम 5% की स्लैब में डाला गया है।

Moving swiftly on the road to formalising the biggest reform of the indirect tax regime, the GST Council decided a four-tier GST tax structure of 5%, 12%, 18% and 28%, with zero rate for essential items and the highest for luxury and de-merits goods which are also expected to attract an additional cess. GST Council on 16th March 2017 has also approved the higher tax rate of 20% under the CGST Bill and SGST Bill; meaning thereby that the peak rate of GST could be raised up to 40% in aggregate in the future. Another rate of zero percent is decided for to cover the essential items including food, which presently constitute roughly half of the consumer inflation basket. Luxury cars, tobacco, pan masala and aerated drinks would also be levied with an additional cess on top of the highest tax rate. The interest of common man has been duly taken care of which is evident from finalisation of 5% tax rate on common use items, as against 6% proposed earlier. However, no clarity has been provided by GST Council regarding the expected GST rate for jewellery.

GST Rates Finalised, GST Rate Slabs 5%, 12%, 18% & 28%

Though rates of the GST are never the part of provision of the act but as promised in the Rajya Sabha by Hon. Finance Minister Shri Arun Jaitely that upper limit of the tax will be part of the law and therefore upper limit of the tax rate of 14% has been provided in Section 8(1) of CGST /SGST Law) and & 28 % on IGST (Section 5(1) of IGST Law) and therefore, now there will be following categories of the tax rates.

Rate of TaxExpected bifurcationRemark
Nil (Exempted Supply)(0% of CGST & 0% of SGST)Necessity items may be exempted, which are presently exempted in all the states for VAT. Generally, these will be in the range of 80 to 99 items.
5%(2.5% of CGST & 2.5% of SGST)Items which are exempted under excise and VAT rate is in the range of 4% to 6% may be covered under this category
12%(6% of CGST & 6% of SGST)Items on which excise duty is 6% and VAT rate are in the range of 4% – 6% may be covered under this category
18%(9% of CGST & 9% of SGST)Majority of the Items, which are not directly needed to the consumer and not covered above will cover in this category.
28%(14% of CGST & 14% of SGST)All other items which are directly reaching to the consumer including luxury goods, i.e. white goods and beverages

What is the rate applicable under composition levy?

Suppliers opting for Composition levy shall pay a tax calculated on turnover at the rate as may be prescribed, but shall not be less than 2.5% in the case of manufacturer and 1% in the case of other suppliers.

It may be noted that the rates 2.5% and 1% would be in respect of CGST as well as SGST and hence, the effective rate would be 5% and 2% respectively. Further, the composition scheme is not available on Services and inter-state outward supplies.

Proposed GST Rates in India

Tax Slabs: Overall, GST will cover rates of 5%, 12%, 18% & 28%, with higher tax set aside for luxury items, which may also attract an additional cess.
