GST levied on job work, which translates into a higher tax incidence, has resulted in carpet and apparel sectors feeling stressed, Federation of Indian Export Organisations (FIEO) President Ganesh Kumar Gupta said while addressing a recent seminar. Incidentally, the GST Council has levied 5 per cent GST on job work in the textile sector such as cutting, embroidery, finishing, washing or pressing, packing, bleaching, dyeing, printing, knitting as well as colouring. Earlier, there was no tax on such job work.
