How much tax is on a LPG Cylinder?
Talking about the tax in an LPG cylinder, it has a different system from petrol and diesel, in which the central and state governments do not levy separate taxes. It is subject to GST, and in this, only one tax is set in the whole country, and the government receives it. The government has included LPG in the 5 per cent slab, in which 2.5 per cent tax is given to the central government and 2.5 per cent to the state government.
Information is shared on social media that the state government takes 55 per cent of the cylinder price as tax. But it is not so; only 5 per cent tax is accepted by the government, in which the central and state governments divide half and half.
