Indian Manmade Fibre (MMF) Industry In Jeopardy: Increased Imports And Esclated Cost Affects Industry

Working out tax rates for different goods and services was a huge challenge for India’s Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council. Although the GST has taken under consideration a significant part of the industry - cotton and natural fibers, distortion has been introduced in the GST system, through the ‘inverted’ duty structure on man-made fibers. Man-made fiber and synthetic yarn attract an 18% GST rate as compared to 12% excise duty, while the fabric produced from these fibers is taxed at 5%.

He also said that even though Velvet is trending worldwide, exports are suffering due to taxation schemes in India. Also, China is hugely competitive.
