India cuts GST on range of goods

On 27 July 2018, the Indian Modi government will re-categorise from 28% to 18% the Goods & Services Tax (GST) rates applicable to a range of over 80 goods. The government faces nationwide parliamentary elections next year, and is seeking to assuage a range of consumers and businesses which lost out in the July 2017 introduction of GST.

The goods affected include:

  • Domestic white goods (washing machines etc)
  • Food grinders, mixers, storage water heaters, water coolers, water heaters, electric ironing machines, among others
  • Footwear
  • Ethanol blended petrol
  • Women’s sanitary products
  • Fortified milk
  • Handicraft goods
