GST council urged to increase compensation cess on tobacco products

Aug 26, 2020 16:18 IST

Public health groups, anti-tobacco activists, along with doctors and economists have urged the GST Council to increase compensation cess on all the tobacco products that can provide additional tax revenue of ₹49,740 crore. The additional revenue could significantly contribute to the increased need for compensation by different States during the pandemic and to disburse the dues already owed by the Centre.
