The following extract of Board's circular may be helpful to you:-

FAQ C.B.I. & C. Circular F. No. 332/2/2017-TRU, dated December, 2017

Q. No.13 What is HS code and GST rate of copra and dried coconut?

1. Coconuts, fresh or dried, whether or not shelled or peeled fall under heading 0801 and attract Nil GST. As per the HSN Explanatory Notes, the heading excludes copra, the dried flesh of coconut used for the expression of coconut oil (1203).

2. Copra falls under heading 1203 and attracts 5% GST.

The GST is leviable if the threshold limit exceeds.

Dear sirs,

Temple is registered under 12AA of Income tax act, charitable and relgious funcitons, still temple is liable to pay on the tender amount received from the contractor?

6 Dated: 17-1-2020

If activity is commercial, no benefit or exemption is available. Now-a-days temples are engaged in commercial activities in addition to religious and charitable activities. Even the departments of electricity and water issue bills and charge commercial rates from the temples.

The Contractor is engaged in two activities : Sale of coconut and supply of service i.e. coconut breaking. It falls under HSN 9985 (998519 or 998599) attracting rate @ 18%.

This is in continuation of my earlier replies dated 16.1.20 above.

kasthuri sir namasthe, is temple is liability to pay GST? on the amounts got from the Contractor for the two activities namely

1) hair tonsure and

2) Coconut breaking, which amount in turn temple will use for charitable purposes.

8 Dated: 17-1-2020

Read the definition of charitable activities and the whole circular of C.B.E. & C. Flyer No. 39, dated 1-1-2018. Relevant extract is as under :-

GST on services provided to charitable trusts : Services provided to charitable trusts are not out of ambit of GST. All services other than those specifically exempted provided to charitable trusts will be subject to GST.

GST on supply of goods by Charitable Trusts : There is no exemption for supply of goods by charitable trusts. Thus any goods supplied by such charitable trusts for consideration shall be liable to GST. For instance, sale of goods shall be chargeable to GST.

9 Dated: 19-1-2020

Service Providers are Contractor (Coconut breaking) and Contractor (activity of tonsuring) and not temple. No exemption is available to them except threshold exemption.

Dear experts,

In my view, the temple is liable to pay GST on the amounts received from the contractors and contractors are liable to pay GST on the amounts received from pilgrims for hair tonsuring and coconut breaking.
