Certain changes in Goods Rate Notification from January 01, 2022 to align it with HS 2022

Background:

Earlier, the CBIC issued Notification No. 1/2017 Central Tax (Rate) dated June 28, 2017 (Goods Rate Notification) in order to notify the rates of GST on supply of goods.

Further, the new (seventh) edition of the Harmonized System (HS) nomenclature i.e., HS-2022, has come into force from January 01, 2022. This edition has introduced significant changes to the Harmonized System with a total of 351 amendments at the six-digit level, covering a wide range of goods moving across borders.

As India is a party to the HS convention, necessary changes were brought in accordingly, in GST through the below mentioned notification:
