NEW DELHI, June 22 (PTI): Andhra Pradesh Finance Minister P Keshav on Saturday said the GST council has referred a recommendation on exempting the fertiliser sector from the current 5 per cent GST to the Group of Ministers on rate rationalisation.

The council discussed the recommendations made by the Standing Committee on Chemicals and Fertilisers in February to reduce GST on nutrients and raw materials in the interest of fertiliser manufacturing companies and farmers.

Currently, GST at a 5 per cent rate is charged on fertilisers, while raw materials like Sulphuric Acid and Ammonia face a higher GST at 18 per cent.
