Various Tax Slabs of GST Creating Anxiety to Traders: CAIT
 

Commenting on the development, a CAIT Official told the media, "Various verticals of retail trade are demanding lower tax on items being dealt by them since they have been categorised under higher tax slab in comparison to tax slab of current VAT tax regime."

"As per an analysis, 1,211 goods and 36 services have been so far classified under GST out of which nearly 50 per cent goods have been placed under 18 per cent rate; 14 per cent under 5 per cent rate; 17 per cent under 12 per cent rate and 19 per cent under 28 per cent rate," he said.

"The wider impact of the classification of items under different tax slabs needs to be gauged very cautiously since under GST not only the taxes paid on goods but even the taxes paid on the services will be eligible for input tax credit," CAIT said.

"Besides, taxes paid on inter-state purchases of goods or availing services will also be eligible for input tax credit," it added.
