chips will be expensive
Nowadays everything from fuel to ration is becoming expensive. Where petrol has reached beyond 100. At the same time, the prices of pulses are also touching the sky. Now there is bad news for the lovers of snacks. Actually, now the packet of chips, salted cashew nuts and other snacks are going to be expensive. These will attract 12% GST. This decision has been taken by the Kerala Authority of Advance Ruling (AAR). According to the authority, this GST rule will also be applicable on unbranded chips and namkeen.
This decision of the authority was challenged by a chips manufacturer living in Palakkad. The applicant said that his company sells various types of chips without a brand. Apart from this, halwa and salted peanuts and cashews are also sold. He argued that these products are classified as ‘salty’ and attract only 5% GST. On this point of the applicant, the AAR said that halwa will attract 5% tax, while other products will attract 12% tax.

The prices of pulses have also increased sharply in the country. To control this, the government has entered into contracts for the import of pulses from abroad. Apart from this, the government asked the traders to declare their stocks. According to media reports, 4200 traders and miles have declared their stock. At present, there is a stock of about 15 lakh tonnes of pulses in the country.
