“With GST most of our locks will be levied at 18 per cent tax. We have decided to pass on the benefit to the consumers by suitably revising its wholesale and retail prices across the country,” Godrej Locking Solutions and Systems VP and business head Shyam Motwani told .
Prior to GST, the lock industry was levied tax at 22-25 %.
“GST is a landmark move towards one nation, one tax initiative. The locks category will now attract 18 per cent GST. This is a positively beneficial move for the industry. We expect demand for branded locks to increase in the near future,” Motwani said.
