New Delhi: Chief minister Vasundhara Raje on Sunday made a case for keeping Kota stone, marble, sandstone and granite in the lower slab of 5 per cent under the GST.
Tax rates on various goods and services will be decided by the GST Council on the recommendation of the Fitment Committee.
"Kota stone, marble, sandstone and granite are taxed at higher rates in other states. The Fitment Committee might decide to fit... (these products) in higher tax slabs.
"I request for consideration of putting marble, Kota stone, sandstone and granite in a lower slab of 5 per cent," Raje said while speaking at the third meeting of the Niti Aayog's Governing Council here.
While the GST Council has decided on a four-tier rate structure of 5, 12, 18 and 28 per cent, its Fitment Committee will devise a formula for the tax rate to be levied on different products and services under the Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime from July.
Noting that this will enable the state to take care of the gaps based on social-economic and geospatial analysis, Raje requested Niti Aayog to partner with Rajasthan for the exercise so that after successful rollout, learning can be shared with other states as well.
