Slab rate of GST for preparation of starch, cereals and flour

Goods and Service Tax (GST) rate tariff in India is designed in 6 categories of goods and services.  Four main GST rate slabs framed with Essential goods and services, Standard goods and services and luxury goods and services with 5%, 12%, 18% and 28% respectively.  Commonly used Goods and Services at 5%, Standard Goods and Services fall under 1st slab at 12%, Standard Goods and Services fall under 2nd Slab at 18% and Special category of Goods and Services including luxury - 28%.   The most essential goods and services attract nil rate of GST under Exempted Categories.

Agriculture is the root of Economy hence government focuses with top priority to encourage agriculture sectors.   So agriculture commodities and agricultural services is expected to be exempted from paying GST.  Processed food products are also expected be included in exemption list of GST where no tax is payable on sale of such products.  The GST exemption list is being published soon by GST authorities in India.  

In India, GST for sale of preparations of flour, starch and cereals is expected to be charged.  The rate slab GST on preparations of flour, starch and cereals is expected to be 12%, but not finalized.  The industry falls under HSN code 19, is very keen on how GST authorities treat rate tariff of GST, whether under dairy products or under farm produce, as the applicability of fixing rate depends.
