Sub: Increase in rate of tax – Schedule C.
Ref: (1) Government Notification No. VAT.1510/CR- 47/Taxation- 1 dated 10th March, 2010.
(2) Corrigendum No. VAT 1510/CR-47/Taxation -1 dated 17th March 2010 Extraordinary No.54
Government of Maharashtra has raised the rate of tax under Schedule ‘C’ of Maharashtra Value Added Tax Act, 2002 from 4 per cent to 5% on goods other than declared goods with effect from 1st April 2010. A notification to this effect has been issued as referred above. While issuing the notification, an inadvertent error had crept in, leading to inference that some fabrics & sugar would become taxable from 1st April 2010. However, a corrigendum has now been issued to correct the mistake & it is hereby clarified that the fabrics & sugars which were tax free prior to issue of this notification continue to remain as tax free.
