Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said on Thursday that the Delhi government supports the traders’ protest against the increase in the Goods and Services Tax (GST) on clothes. And this issue will be raised in the meeting of the GST Council. Many markets in the national capital Delhi remained closed on Thursday against the Centre’s move to increase the GST rate on clothing from five per cent to 12 per cent from January 1.

Sisodia, who is also handling the responsibility of Finance Minister, tweeted that the protest of textile traders against increasing the GST rate from 5 per cent to 12 per cent is justified. He said in the tweet that the Delhi government under the leadership of Aam Aadmi Party and Arvind Kejriwal is in favor of keeping the tax rates low. Sisodia said that in the meeting of the GST Council tomorrow, he will demand to keep the tax on clothes low.

Business organizations also oppose

Industry body Chamber of Trade and Industry (CTI) has demanded withdrawal of the tax hike and called for the closure of textile markets in the city.

CTI Chairman Brijesh Goyal said that the GST Council proposes that from January 1, the tax rate on clothing should be increased to 12 per cent from the current five per cent. And the business class is opposing it.

At the same time, let us tell you that according to media reports, discussion can be held in this meeting to postpone increasing the rate of GST on clothing and footwear from 5 percent to 12 percent. With this, more time can be given to the Group of Ministers to submit the report on changes in tax rates and slabs. The clothing and footwear industry has been against the decision of the GST Council in September. In this meeting, it was decided to correct the duty structure by increasing the GST rate on clothing and footwear from January 1.

Apart from this, the government has extended the deadline for Goods and Services Tax (GST) annual return and reconciliation statement for FY 2021 by two months. The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) in an order said that the due date for filing annual return in Form GSTR-9 and Self-Certified Reconciliation Statement in Form GSTR-9C has been extended from end-December to end-February Is.
