Government withdraws Excise Duty on all precious metal jewellery

A related proposal that has attracted public attention is the imposition of Central Excise duty on unbranded precious metal jewellery at the rate of 1%. Madam Speaker, I would like to reiterate that the levy was well-intentioned and introduced not so much for raising revenue as for rationalization and movement towards GST. However, the outpouring of sentiment both within and outside the House indicates that we are not ready for it. As such, the Government has decided to withdraw the levy on all precious metal jewellery, branded or unbranded, with effect from 17th March, 2012.
