For Example:- Rajesh, a dealer in Maharashtra sold goods to Anand in Maharashtra worth INR 10,000. The GST rate is 18% comprising of CGST rate of 9% and SGST rate of 9%, in such case the dealer collects INR 1800 and INR 900 will go to the central government and INR 900 will go to the Maharashtra government.

Again, if Rajesh sells goods to dealer in Delhi worth INR 10,000, this being inter- state, the dealer will charge IGST at the rate of 18% and the amount collected INR 1800 will go the central government and will later be apportioned between the union and the states on the recommendation of the GST Council.

GST Rates Decided on Gold, Biscuits by GST Council Meeting held on (3rd June 2017)

GST Rates fixed on gold, diamond, footwear, others: GST rate fixed: Gold to be taxed at 3%, biscuits 18%, garments 12%

For gold, the GST has been set at 3 per cent introducing a new tax slab, fairly in line with industry expectations that was appealing for 2 per cent. Last month, the GST Council finalised a four-tier structure for taxation of both goods and services at 5, 12, 18 and 28 per cent. According to sources, the proposal for gold was to put it in the 5 per cent slab.

GST Rates on Services

  • All services have been fitted into four different rates, which are 5%, 12%, the standard 18% and the luxury rate of 28%
  • Travelling on metro, local train, religious travel, Haj yatra will all be exempt from GST: revenue secretary, Hasmukh Adhia.
  • AC train travel to get cheaper under GST
  • Transport services (Railways, air transport) will be under the 5% category because their main input is petroleum, which is outside GST ambit.
  • 18% tax slab for telecom, financial services
  • Healthcare and education have been exempted from the service list. Most service structures will remain as is, said sources. This implies services will become cheaper in some segments
