New GST Rates: From Pre-Packaged Food Items to Hotel Rooms; List of Items That Becomes Expensive from Today

The decision to was made last month during the 47th GST meeting, which was presided over by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and attended by her state counterparts when they trimmed the exemption list and levied a tax on a variety of goods and services.

Customers will have to pay extra for home commodities, financial services, hospitals, and hotels as the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council's decision goes into effect from Monday. Prices for some essential goods and services, including pre-packaged, labeled food products and hospital rooms, will rise beginning today.

The Council also eliminated duty inversion for commodities when input taxes were higher than output taxes.

"Specific pre-packaged and labeled commodities (without a registered brand name) like wheat, rice, maize, makhana, specified flours, and so on would be subject to 5% GST from July 18, 2022, raising the cost to the user," said Saurabh Agarwal, tax partner at EY India.

"It is critical for the industry to investigate if the specified pre-packaged goods are needed to have a declaration on them under the Legal Metrology Act, 2009," Agarwal added.
