Mysuru, May 27:- All India Agarbatti Manufacturers Association opposed the implementation of 12% GST on agarbatti. It affects thousands of families depending on the agarbatti industry. To overcome this, the association is requesting the ministry to reconsider the tax, said president of the association Sharath Babu.
“As it comes under small scale or home industry. As of now, it has 0% tax. We were expecting a support for the industry in GST as well. But the 12 % tax becomes unscientific. As the industry is facing lack of workers, this will become a problem for the industry. The GST should be fixed at 5% maximum keeping in mind the interest of the industry,” he added. (SH)
