GST Cess Hike in Cars Takes Effect From Today

Published on September 11, 2017
The GST Council on 9 September decided to hike cess on mid-sized cars by 2%, taking the effective GST rate to 45%. 
Cess on large cars has been hiked by 5%, taking the total GST incidence to 48% while that of SUVs by 7% to 50%.

Key Facts

  • The increased goods and services tax (GST) cess on mid- sized, luxury and SUV cars has come into effect from today.
  • Mid segment cars which earlier incurred a GST tax of 28% in addition to a cess of 15% to bring the total tax to 43%, will now incur a cess of 17% to bring the tax to 45%.
  • This is still 3% cheaper to the pre-GST taxation level which was at 48%.
  • The small and hybrid cars are exempted from any hike.
