Post-GST, coal consumers to benefit with Rs 6,000 cr savings in taxes

Kolkata - Coal consumers are expected to be benefitted by Rs 6,000 crore annual savings with reduction in tax rates after the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST), an official said.

In the pre-GST regime, there was excise duty on coal at the rate of 6%, stowing excise duty at Rs 10 per tonne of coal production, value added tax at 5% (on intra-state sale), and central sales tax at 2% (on inter-state sale). Post-implementation of GST, all these taxes and levies have been subsumed and GST of five per cent is being charged from consumers.

"We have estimated that on an average the reduction in rate on local sales is about 5% and on the inter-state sales the rate of reduction in taxes is about 3%. This (the reduction of tax rates) will give an advantage to the customers to the tune of Rs 6,000 crore (annually)," a Coal India official said.

He said the miner is facing an inverted tax structure in GST regime as its output is taxed at a lower rate while its inputs are taxed on higher rates.

"Coal has been made taxable at 5% in the GST regime while taxes are ranging between 18% and 28% on our inputs. Our output is taxed at five per cent while our inputs are taxed at higher rates. This is a kind of an inverted tax structure and, going forward, this will lead to refund situation."

The official also said that demonetisation did not have much of impact on the miner as most of the payments were made through online banking system.
