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
- Ethanol blended petrol
- Women’s sanitary products
- Fortified milk
- Handicraft goods
