Inorganic chemicals GST rates in India

GST rate for commodities under HSN code 28 is expected to be levied 18%. Here you can look HS codes list of chapters for every product. And Inorganic chemicals fall under Chapter 28. And you can see GST rates on chemicals. In India Inorganic chemicals GST percentage is covered under chapter 28 of HSN code. Hence, check GST on sulfuric acid. And also see GST on textile chemicals.

Impact of GST on Chemical Industry

GST is biggest tax reform. In India chemical industries have continued facing severe challenges owing to mounting taxations. However in GST regime, scene can be different as almost every predictable impact of GST on chemical industries looks positive

What will be tax rates for inorganic chemicals under the GST?

Here is following inorganic chemicals fall under 5% tax bracket for GST. Hence, HSN Code list for GST in India

Thorium oxalate

Enriched KBF4 (enriched potassium fluroborate)

Enriched elemental boron

Nuclear fuel

Nuclear grade sodium -HSN code 2805 11

Heavy water and other nuclear fuels – HSN code 2845

Compressed air – HSN code 2853

The following inorganic chemicals will fall under the 12% tax bracket for the GST:
