    The GST Council had reduced the GST rates on several products, which will make them cheaper. However, this will happen only if the producers of these products cut rates. Here is a complete list of products that can get cheaper with effect from today (November 15, 2017). We wish to emphasize that the producers may not be able to immediately cut rates, as the MRP on several products may already have been displayed earlier.

    But, eventually they may or may not. In any case here are the revised GST rates from today.
