Tax on Electricity

Electricity is an essential part of daily life of every one. Consumers may not be aware of very high rate of tax being paid by them.
There are two tax rate levied on electricity:
1. Electricity Duty @ 16% on bill amount.
2. Tax on Sale of electricity @ Rs.0.2604 per Unit (Kwh)
Bill amount consists of:
Energy Charges
Fixed Charges
Fuel Adjustment Charges
Regulatory Asset Charges
Wheeling Charges

We would like to suggest that electricity supply to be brought under GST with a rate of 5% without input tax credit. more

Has GOI given any relief to citizens of India ever? NO. Gives somewhere takes more than from somewhere. more  
There should be one single tax like GST and it can be 5%. If you see in Mumbai Adani Electricity bill, there are half a dozen taxes. That has to be studied and curtailed by State Govt/Adani. more  
WE must be the highest tax paying country- tax on everything!! more  
Government will have to collect revenue from electricity at the present rate only.
It is like petrol and diesel prices.

They will not reduce taxes.

At best they may name differently, but collect the same total amount from each consumer.

Let us face the reality and live with it. more  
Tax on electricity should be restricted to GST only. more
