New Delhi sources have stated that the country's Finance Minister Arun Jaitley hinted that the tax rate on hybrid card will not be reviewed, saying the industry demands were not in sync with a study conducted by tax officers.



Previously the council had fixed 43% tax (28% GST plus 15% cess) on hybrid cars, a rate that industry felt was too high for the fuel efficient vehicles. Jaitley told reporters that "We have done a detailed study on auto industry demand and a paper has been made which will be circulated among members. And, if necessary, it would come up for discussion. The fact that is being presented, according to the paper, is not correct".

Tax rate on hybrid cars will not be reviewed: Arun Jaitley

The GST Council, chaired by the Union Finance Minister and having state counterparts as members, today lowered tax rates on 66 of the 133 items demanded by various sections of the industry and the council in its previous two meetings had put almost all goods and services in the tax brackets of 5, 12, 18 and 28% as it prepares to roll out the Goods and Services Tax (GST) from July 1.



Moreover Jaitley said the weighted average of all the rates decided by the council is significantly lower than the present tax incidence. As per the proposed rates under the GST regime, hybrid vehicles have been put in the same category as big petrol and diesel luxury cars attracting 28% rate with a cess of 15%.
