How much tax on a cylinder?
Talking about the tax in an LPG cylinder, it has a different system from petrol and diesel, in which the central and state governments do not levy separate taxes. It is subject to GST and in this, only one tax is levied in the whole country and it is received by the government. The government has included LPG in the 5 percent slab, in which 2.5 percent tax is given to the central government and 2.5 percent to the state government.
Information is shared on social media that the state government takes 55 percent of the price of the cylinder as tax. But it is not so, only 5 percent tax is taken by the government, in which the central and state governments divide half and half.
What is included in the rate of cylinder?
