changes in GST rates

The GST Council pruned the list of items in the top 28% and made changes in GST rates to include just 50 items from the current 228. So, only luxury and sin goods are now in the highest tax slab while commodities of daily use are shifted to 18 percent.

Things on which GST rates were reduced includes over 176 items, including beauty products, chewing gums, chocolates, coffee, and custard powder.
