Goods and Service Tax for sale of fertilizers

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.     Luxury goods and services and certain specific goods and services   attract additional cess than 28% GST.

According to exports in Fertilizers Industry, even if the lower end is applied to fertilizers, it would be double the existing 6% (excise of 1% and VAT of 5%). A rate higher than even 12% is not ruled out considering that majority of states want standard rate to be higher than 18%.

Some of the items under Fertilizers like Urea is expected to be exempted from GST in India.  The GST exemption list is being published soon by the authorities in India.
