Dear Sir/Madam,

 

We are pleased to inform you that with the rigorous effort of this Council and your kind cooperation, all job works in textile sector will now attract a GST of 5% instead of previously decided 18%.This 5 percent rate will be applicable for all job works of carpets sector as decided in GST council meeting dated 5th August,2017. A formal notification in this regards will be issued shortly.

 

The e-way bill provisions relating to online pre-registration of goods before transportation were also relaxed which envisage a technology-driven tracking of movement of goods worth more than Rs 50,000 and for sale beyond 10 km in distance. The e-way bill rules are likely to come into force from October 1.  

 

We thank you for all your patience and perseverance in this regard.

 

 

   Yours

 

 

Mahavir (Raja) Sharma
