Luxury cars will be taxed at 28% GST plus a cess of 15%, while small petrol cars will be taxed at 28% GST plus a 1% cess and small diesel cars at 28% plus 3% cess.

The 2 day meeting which has started today is the fourteenth meeting of the council, many key decisions such as deciding rates will be discussed in the meet. The GST rate on coal has been fixed at 5 per cent, down from 11.69 per cent of tax now charged. "One criteria in mind is that overall impact should not be inflationary", Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said. "Accordingly, while food stuff and unprocessed basic items like tea, coffee and edible oil may become cheaper, a large number of items which will be under 28% bracket would become costlier" company quoted him as saying. This would significantly bring down the list of "zero tax" products.
