This letter is to humbly request the Honorable Prime Minister of India to kindly reduce the tax bracket on lifesaving fire safety products such as fire extinguishers and other related equipments, from a high proposed bracket of 28% to a lower slab of 12% under the new GST framework.
Fire Safety Products such as Fire extinguishers, Fire Suppression Systems, Hydrant Systems and other related equipments are meant for the safety of residential, commercial, industrial and institutional establishments. While the nation is building futuristic infrastructure at an unprecedented speed under your able leadership, we wish to humbly draw your attention to the important role the fire safety products play in protecting this infrastructure against the threat of Fire. Over several decades, fire safety products have played a big role in saving the precious assets of this country from fire accidents and will continue to do so in times to come when our country enters into a decisive growth & development phase.
However, a heavy 28% tax on fire safety products and equipments under the new GST framework will invariably discourage individuals, companies and establishments from investing in essential products such as these. In the interest of the nation, we would like to request our Honorable Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modi and our Honorable Finance Minister Sri Arun Jaitley to kindly reduce the GST tax bracket on fire safety products from a high of 28% to a more reasonable 12% bracket.
We put this request to you on behalf of the entire fire safety industry in India. We are sure our Respected Prime Minster and Finance Minister would see good reason in our plea and would reduce the GST bracket on Fire Safety products to a lower 12% tax slab.
Reiterating our commitment to safeguard the assets of our great nation against fire, we thank you in anticipation.
