Eggs an agri produce, transport not to incur GST: AAR

Eggs an agri produce, transport not to incur GST: AAR

The debate over what came first — the chicken or the egg — may never end. However, the Karnataka bench of the GST Authority for Advance Rulings (AAR) may have put an end to the debate on whether or not eggs are an agricultural produce.
The AAR was approached by SAS Cargo, which transports consignments across India using leased railway containers. It sought clarity on applicability of goods and services tax (GST) on transportation of eggs. The AAR said, in view of the notification No. 12/2017 dated June 28, 2017, eggs are indeed an agricultural produce. Thus, transportation of eggs will not attract GST.
