GST Council meeting UPSC NOTE


  • The Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council was convened last week for the first time in nearly nine months

  • To help students, hostel accommodation costing up to ₹20,000 a month has been exempted from GST altogether, 

  • along with railway services availed by passengers. 

  • A uniform 12% rate has been approved for packing cartons, milk cans, and solar cookers, doing away with confusing classification differences based on material or technologies.

  • The Council also opted to waive interest and penalty on tax dues for the first three years of GST, provided they are paid by March 2025. 

  • Moreover, it lowered the stipulated pre-deposits for filing appeals, including those that will be filed with the upcoming GST Appellate Tribunals, 

  • and approved a new form for taxpayers to correct errors or oversights in previous returns. 

  • The Council also signed off on ending the anti-profiteering clause that required firms to pass on any tax cut gains to customers, and mandating biometric-based Aadhaar authentication for all GST registrations 

  • The Council also plans to take stock of the 2021 plan to rationalise the multiple-rate GST structure, that has been in cold storage for a while, when it meets next.
