    Please clarify:
    All purchases of closing stock are Interstate of Iron & Steel Excise paid @ 12.5% plus 2% CST. So ITC on closing stock is admissible against excise paid invoices @ 12.5%.

    All Sales after 1st July, 2017 shall be @ 12% rates, both Interstate @ 12% IGST and also Intrastate may be chargeable to 6% CGST and 6% SGST, after value addition.

    Question is against which tax, credit of ITC of IGST shall be admissible i.e. IGST, CGST or SGST. We have been given to understand that ITC of closing stock can be adjusted against CGST only.
