      Hi Pramod,

      This is a Cess levied by virtue of Finance Bill of Kerala State. In the Finance Bill, it is mentioned that such Cess shall be leviable on the value of supply. However, it may be noted that SGST+CGST shall be levied on the value of supply plus value of such Cess as per Section 15(2)(a) of Kerala SGST Act.
