Reduced Tax Liabilities under GST regime in comparison to present combined Indirect Tax rates

Capital Market 

The new indirect regime in the country is to come into effect from 01.07.2017, wherein fixation of rates on the supplies is joint responsibility of the Central and State governments after the approval from the Council.

In a majority of supplies of goods, the incidence approved by the Council is much lower than the present combined indirect rates levied [on account of central excise duty rates / embedded central excise duty rates / service post-clearance embedding, VAT rates or weighted average VAT rates, cascading of VAT over excise duty and incidence on account of CST, Octroi, Entry Tax, etc.] by the Centre and States.

A list of such supplies, where the incidence is lower than the present combined indirect rates are reflected as under:
