GST and Its Effect on Gas
Goods and Services Tax (GST) has radically changed the prices of all the goods and services we avail in our daily lives within the country.
Instead of charging multiple taxes like excise duty, additional customs duty, surcharges, service tax, and other such charges, the government will now levy a single tax on the citizens, GST.
The new GST regime affects almost all industries. One of the significant changes brought about in the pricing in the country is on the prices of gas. The new GST taxation structure resulted in an increase in the domestic gas prices and reduction in the commercial gas prices.
GST Tax Structure
GST Bill is considered as a milestone with respect to taxation in the country. The main motive of the bill was to avoid the rampant 'double-taxation.' The GST Bill was approved on 29th March 2017 and the deadline for complete implementation was 1st July. With the implementation of the GST Bill, some goods will become cheaper while others will become dearer depending on the tax slab the goods or services fall in. The GST Bill introduced five tax slabs, namely, 0%,5%,12%,18%,25%. The rationale behind implementing multiple tax slabs was that necessary goods and services must not be charged with the same tax as luxury goods.
The GST Bill had two components; first is the taxes levied by the Centre is known as CGST and the other component being the taxes levied on the state, known as SGST. Only goods and services that are exempted from GST are the necessary goods which are mostly consumed by the low-earning families. Both Centre and State have the jurisdiction to prescribe the tax rate for commodities and services since the implementation of GST widely depends on the receptiveness from the public.
What are the effects of GST on Domestic Bharat Gas Pricing in India?
The impacts of GST on Domestic Bharat Gas cylinders are listed below:
An increase of Rs.32 per cylinder on domestic LPG prices happened post the implementation of GST Rule.
This is considered to be the steepest hike in domestic gas prices in India. The last time that such an increase was recorded was on 25 June 2011, when the price of domestic subsidized LPG rose by Rs.50 due to the rise in international oil prices.
Each year only twelve subsidized cylinders are given to each household. After exhausting the 12 subsidized cylinders, customers will have to pay the market price of the cylinder and pay tax 18% GST on the cylinder price.
Services provided by the company like inspection of the gas cylinder, installation, and other such mandatory charges will also attract 18% GST rate.
States that were not charging any form of taxes on domestic gas cylinders will also come under the GST rule. Such states will now witness an increase in domestic LPG cylinders prices by Rs.12 to Rs.15 per cylinder.
