New Delhi sources have stated that to ensure smooth roll out of Goods and Service Tax, the Central Government has abolished cesses on goods and services included in the last three General Budgets viz 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18, and starting from July 1, 2017 with GST in place the government will also abolish cess on automobiles. Through Taxation Laws Amendment Act 2017, The Industries (Development and Regulation) Act 1951 Cess on Automobile will no longer be applicable.



It was stated that the Central Government has taken this step in stages by abolishing various cesses so that it is easier to fit in various goods and services in different tax slabs for GST. Earlier, the Central Government in its General Budget 2015-16 had abolished Education Cess.

Cess on Rubber has also been abolished. The last amendment of the Rubber Act, 1947 empowered the Central Government to levy cess at a rate not exceeding Rs2.00 per kilogram. But with GST, this also will no longer be applicable.
