GST Council may decrease tax rates in future: CBEC

Dec '16
The goods and services tax (GST) Council might reduce the proposed tax slabs of 5 per cent, 12 per cent, 18 per cent and 28 per cent in the future after examining the revenue generation from the bill and paying compensations to the states, said a top CBEC official. Industries in India demanded rate cuts following the demonetisation of high currency notes.

The Centre and the Indian state governments jointly collect Rs 8 lakh crore by way of indirect taxes excluding customs duty and the same amount needs to be generated after GST bill is applied, said media reports quoting Najib Shah, chairman of Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC).  Shah added that changes in tax slabs are possible after the government assesses the revenues and expenditure and analyses the effects of exemptions and deductions in the new bill.

Shah also said that the decision to compensate states for five years after implementing GST is a burden that the Centre has taken upon on itself. The GST is likely to increase revenues and there will be a lesser need for compensation.

The GST Council also has to consider products under GST and all the states' political compulsions before taxing them. Shah also said that a committee of officers has already started working on placing goods in different tax brackets and the final decision on the same will be made by the GST Council.

He also rejected the idea of a single rate structure for GST like the one that European Union (EU) has, saying that varied products and their different taxation rates call for a multi-tier structure. (KD)
