Do you want GST-Free on Corona-Fighting items?

I found the trending hashtag on Twitter which is #GSTFreeCorona so I thought to check and find out the origin.

On Saturday, the Indian youth congress advised, requested and urged the central government to waive off GST from medical equipment like ventilators, medicines like paracetamol, hand sanitizers, PPE, masks and other lifesaving drugs until the time, the country is fighting with the pandemic.

As I found the hashtag on Twiter, I was surprised to see so less number of likes, comments and retweets on the post. Just like me, others were also laughing on the same.

Vaibhav Walia mentioned that:

If the govt. agree to our demand of #GSTFreeCorona

Masks will become 5% cheaper for people

Sanitizers will become 18% cheaper for people.

Gloves will become 12% cheaper for people

PPE kits will become 12% cheaper for doctors and medical staff.

Even people like us, who are inspired by his English-diction got inspired by Vaibhav and tweeted:

This is a totally legitimate demand. Shocking the Govt would seek to make money off these indispensable essentials in the midst of a pandemic. I support #GSTFreeCorona-fighting items.

Even the media has no interest in writing articles or blogs about the opposition’s initiative apart from Business Standard.

Let’s find out the Relinquish Tax (GST, IGST & Custom-Duty) on the essential products to Restrain/Cure of Covid-19.

Do you really agree with this tweet?

Even if the world is about to end, do you think someone will give his valuable vote to Rahul Gandhi?

So let’s find out if Modi government has ever considered or issued GST-Free in any compliance.

  • Government has extended the date of filing GST returns to businesses.
  • Relief from penalty and fine.
  • Exemptions from import duties.
  • The Government has also decided that the due date for issue of notice, notification, approval order, sanction order, filing of the appeal, furnishing of return, statements, applications, reports, any other documents, the time limit for any compliance under the GST laws where the time limit is expiring between 20th March 2020 to 29th June 2020 will be extended to 30th June 2020.
