Central government had imposed common Goods and Service Taxes for similar categorized products all over India. Fire Crackers fall on 18% goods and service tax category. Hence the rates of fire crackers were increased last year. The manufactures from Sivakasi says, total sales of fireworks got decreased due to GST implementation.
Goods and service tax for corrugated boxes is 12%, these boxes are used to pack firecrackers compactly to reach retail markets safely. This also impacts the price of crackers on stores during Diwali festival season. Thousands of labors employed from firecrackers manufacturing might lose their job. Hence, manufactures decided to clear their stocks with credit options to nearby retail stores. Many industries were not able to follow the new restriction and more than 300 manufacturing factories shuts down their production and other few manufactures cut down their production by 50% from previous year production.
Many shop owners are in fear with customer’s reaction after hearing the price of crackers. Previously firecrackers are sold with 14% VAT and after GST regime it falls under greater tax slab of 18%. This burdened peoples more and dampening their celebrating spirit.
Public complained that there is a 30% rise in crackers price compared to 2016 rates in wholesale shops. They returned with purchasing half a bag of crackers. Firework manufactures from Sivakasi and all over India strongly condemns Good and Service act. Good and Services Tax on crackers should be reduced in upcoming years. We believe that this may kill Sivakasi Firework production business and Chinese crackers will be imported to India.
