NEW DELHI: According to NDTV, the GST Council Friday reduced the tax rate on range of items at its 22nd meeting held in New Delhi. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who heads the Council said after the day-long meeting, that GST rate on many daily-use items have been reduced, including man made yarn, unbranded namkeen, stones used in flooring and diesel engine parts, among others.

The council which had in its last meeting in September cut taxes on 40 items, said it has cut the GST rate on 27 items today. The Finance Minister also hinted that tax on eating out is being reconsidered and announced that a group of finance ministers would take a complete relook at the way the restaurants should be taxed.

Here is the full list of items which are set to become cheaper after the latest set of tax cuts, according to Mr Jaitley:

The GST Council today also hiked the threshold limit of the composition scheme to Rs. 1 crore from Rs. 75 lakh. The move will ease the compliance norms for small businesses. Businesses with annual turnover up to Rs. 1 crore can now opt for the composition scheme, which enables them to pay tax at a flat rate without input credits, Jaitley said. The council also announced a slew of measures to help exporters with GST compliance.

The review comes after feedback and complaints from businesses over compliance issues with the indirect tax regime.
