TN traders have a solution to avoid GST on 25 kgs of rice and sell it in 26 kg sacks

To circumvent the 5% Goods and Services Tax (GST) on rice, many groups of rice vendors in Tamil Nadu have come up with a sufficient solution for selling the rice in 26 kg bags instead of its usual quantity of 25 kg. The Government also considers rice bags weighing under 25 kg as a retail counter and each kg of this rice recently costs around Rs 2-3 more than it used to. As a result of which the consumers have to shell out Rs 50-80 extra for one 25 kg bag of rice. However, traders have now found a way to avoid these charges by selling rice at 26 kg, rather than 25 kg.
