Effect of GST Rule on Domestic Cooking Gas

After the implementation of GST in India, the prices of many items, including cooking gas, have been modified. All domestic LPG cylinders, including Bharat Gas cylinders, fall under the 5% GST bracket. This means that the price that you pay for your Bharat Gas cylinder includes a 5% GST charge. Before the introduction of GST, some states did not impose taxes on cooking gas, which made it tax-free in those states.

Note: It is important to note that 5% GST only applies to subsidized cylinders. Once you have used up your 12 subsidized cylinders for the year, every subsequent Bharat Gas cylinder will be subject to an 18% GST.

While getting a new Bharat Gas connection or equipment, you will have to pay various charges including tariffs, security deposits, and service charges. The cost of refilling your Bharat Gas LPG cylinders includes a 5% GST for subsidized cylinders and an 18% GST for non-subsidized cylinders. You can simply book your Bharat Gas cylinders on the Paytm mobile app in a few seconds from the comfort of your home.
