One response to “GST Council recommends Change in GST Rates on 40 Type of Goods”

  1. Rajiv Jain says:

    Glass Envelopes covered under chapter 7011, used for manufacturing of Electric GLA Lamp (Electric Bulb) mainly used by poor and rural areas, as Bulb is available to them @ Rs.6/- to Rs.12/- each. In India more than 901% people are not in a position to afford LED Bulb or tubes.
    Glass Envelopes attract GST @28%.
    More over In India more that 80% of Electric Bulb are manufactured in Cottage or tiny Industries, which provides employment to thousands of workers, it is the light of poor, why the Goverment ask them to liver in old pattern i.e. Kerosene Lamps. On one side Government provide electricity in rural areas and on other side charges GST @28% on there daily need items.
    obviously LED Bulb and tubes are only assembled in India and the components used to manufacture LED Bulb or Tubes are imported from China and other countries, whereas GLS lamp is made in India from the products manufactured in India.
    You are requested to please put the matter in GST council to reconsider GST rate on Glass envelopes to safe tiny industries and also to save precious foreign currency.
