The Central Government’s decision on GST in respect of the textiles and clothing sector (T and C) is on expected lines. By and large, the industry’s pleas for a lower rate of GST have been accepted. Not with standing this, two problem areas have been flagged off for the government’s consideration one is job work and second is GST on manmade fibres (MMF) and yarn. What is encouraging is the statement of Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley that he is giving three months’ time to see the operation of GST, after which he would examine various demands raised by Southern India Mills Association (SIMA) and other textile bodies.
