5 pc import duty on key component used in TV manufacturing from Oct 1
Customs duty of 5 per cent has been imposed on import of a key component used in manufacturing of LED/LCD TVs from October 1, a government notification said on Wednesday
Customs duty of 5 per cent has been imposed on import of a key component used in manufacturing of LED/LCD TVs from October 1, a government notification said on Wednesday.
The government had last year exempted customs duty on open cells for a year till September 30 as the domestic industry had sought time to build capacity.
The finance ministry, through a notification on Wednesday, prescribed 5 per cent customs duty on open cells for LED/LCD TV panels.
EY Tax Partner Abhishek Jain said this levy seems to aim at fostering domestic manufacturing of open cells for televisions in India.
"While this could entail increased costs for some TV manufacturers, a duty leverage could incline TV manufactures for procuring / manufacturing domestically produced open cells and thus, advance the Make in India initiative of the Government," Jain added.
