Paratha will attract 18% GST bread at 5%
Roti and paratha are generally considered to be an equivalent sort of food, but the Karnataka bench of the Authority of Advance Ruling (AAR) has levied a special rate of GST, considering it a special food item.
AAI said during a decision that 18% GST will need to be paid on the paratha. On this, the fifth G GST rate imposed on bread won’t be valid. AAR argued, the products under the title Roti (1905) are pre-prepared and cooked. At an equivalent time, the paratha has got to be prepared or heated before eating.
Hence, this may not come under the 99 A rule of GST, under which bread is taxed at five per cent. The authority also gave this decision on an appeal by the Karnataka private foods producer company asking that the parathas be placed within the category of roti chakra or plain chapati.
