iron: rate tax ingst of iron products

V. Nagaraj Bapat: I would like to know HSN code for crusher backing compound used in stone and ore crushers This material is used as a consumable spare and is required every month. This is not a finished product for a crusher that attracts 28% GST under chapter 32. As this is a consumable spare for a machinery can this be treated as spare for crushers in which case it attracts 18% GST under chapter 84. Can you please clarify?
