Indian renewable energy sector is hatchling now due to our honourable prime minister effort.But still there are regions which doesn't not have electricity and our per capita electricity consumption is too low of 1122kwh per year for which we enjoy very low amount of electrical needs & due to frequent power outages.Indian citizen & the government is trying there best to electrify every home,where solar energy plays the leading role as it can be accessed from any place.Though indian market being mainly off-grid driven there is always need of solar batteries for off-grid solar industries.But its a mismatch of decision of GST COUNCIL OF INDIA to make solar batteries gst rate as high as 28% where solar panels gst rate is as low as 5% which play a obstructing role in off-grid solar power plant installation in rural as well as urban areas.so its my request to government of india and the GST COUNCIL OF INDIA to set the GST rate of solar batteries to a minimum so that it will speed up our honourable prime minister project of achieving 100gigawatt of solar energy by 2022 as well as help us reach every home where only off-grid solar is a possibility for electricity.
