GST Rule and Its Effect on Domestic Cooking Gas

GST or Goods and Services Tax(GST) was introduced in our country on 1 July 2017. Items which fall under GST have various tax brackets such as 0%, 5%, 12%, 18%, and 28%. All the domestic LPG cylinders fall under the 5% tax bracket. It must be noted that the final price of your cooking gas is inclusive of GST.
