India sets GST rates
- 5 November 2016 | Richard Asquith
India has set the following Goods and Services Tax (GST) rates ahead of the implementation of the new consumption tax in 2017:
- 0% (essentials)
- 5% (basic goods)
- 18% (principle rate)
- 28% (luxury goods)
The central CESS tax, of 2%, will remain on luxury goods.
