Effect of GST Rule on Domestic Cooking Gas
Ever since GST or Goods and Services Tax was introduced in our country, the prices of many things have been changed and cooking gas also comes under those things. All the domestic LPG cylinders including Bharat Gas cylinders fall under the 5% tax bracket of GST. Therefore, the price you pay for your Bharat Gas cylinder also includes 5% GST charges.
A lot of states were not taxing on cooking gas before GST was introduced due to which cooking gas was tax-free in those states. Also, it is noteworthy that 5% GST is only applicable to the subsidized cylinders. When you exhaust your 12 subsidised cylinders a year, there will be an 18% GST after that on every Bharat Gas cylinder.
There are several charges that you need to pay whenever you get a new Bharat Gas connection or a piece of equipment. These charges consist of tariffs, security deposits and service charges. The price you need to pay for refilling your Bharat Gas LPG cylinders also consists of 5% GST on subsidized cylinders and 18% GST on non-subsidized cylinders. Moreover, you can apply for a new Bharat Gas connection and also book a Bharat Gas cylinder online easily.
