GST Rates in dry Dog Food. Need to understand the comparison between the new GST system and Old Tax?

As far as I am informed - Dog Foods should be taxed under GST HSN Chapter Code 2301 at 5%? What was the tax rate before GST? Need to understand if it as gone up or gone down based on the old and new taxation on Dog Dry Food.

Hi Biswarup,Thanks for asking the most trending question on dog food. We would like to inform that Dog Food should be taxed under HSN Code 23091000 at Nil GST. Earlier Dog food was taxed at 12.5% in most of the state of India and was exempt in some states i.e. Madhya Pradesh, Goa.Now Under GST regime Dog Food has to be taxed @ Nil. The most canine food companies are saying it will be taxed at 18% and also approaching GST Council to fix at the same but some are selling at Nil as per GST rate list issued by GST Council on dated. 18th May 2017.So It means Dog Food price will be little-gone up if the council fix at 18% which was earlier 12.5%.

Thanks for the clarification and answering this question first of all. Most of the retailers/distributors are taking advantage of the GST confusion and billing at 18% where as they shud charge NIL. This is posing huge burden on end customers as they pass on the liability wrongfully. Another thing was said by a retailer that imported dog foods are to be charged a diff rate than Indian manufactured dog food. Is that correct? Or are all dog foods to be charged NIL GST?
