GST on sports and fitness goods

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


Maharashtra Sports and Fitness Trade Association made a presentation to the Finance Minister, Government of Maharashtra.

Our request to the Finance Minister was :

1. Please treat ALL SPORTS GOODS as ONE. Please DO NOT categorize them under 12% and 28% GST.
In 28% category you have included items for General Physical Exercise and OLYMPIC DISCIPLINES like ATHLETICS and GYMNASTICS.

Hon. Mr. Arun Jaitley has repeatedly said that 28% will be levied on LUXURY / SIN goods. Why is it then being sought to be levied on OLYMPIC DISCIPLINES like ATHLETICS and GYMNASTICS?

2. Current VAT rates are as follows :

0% in Uttar Pradesh
4% in Gujarat
5.5% in Punjab
6% in Maharashtra

Hon. Mr. Arun Jaitley has said that GST will be around the current rate of VAT or even less than it. Why then is GST being levied @ 12% and in some cases, even 28%?

Our humble submission is that GST on ALL SPORTS GOODS should be NIL or MINIMUM POSSIBLE
