Effect of GST Rule on Domestic Cooking Gas
GST or Goods and Services Tax was introduced in our country in 2017 and the prices of many things have been affected, both reduced or increased since then. Your cooking gas also comes under GST as you have to pay 5% GST on your cooking gas for the first 12 subsidized cylinders and 18% GST after that on the non-subsidized cylinders.
Many states in India were not taxing on cooking gas before GST was introduced, therefore cooking gas was tax-free in those states. Now with the introduction of GST, cooking gas is taxed even in those states.
