GST rate for transportation of water

  • Contents

Whether own water transported through tankers from one place to another will be treated as a transport contract under GST or as a water distribution service. Both have different rates for GST. This is not a supply but pure service contract.

GTA services (including transportation of used household goods for personal use) attract a GST rate of either 5 percent (2.5 percent CGST, 2.5 percent SGST), or 12 percent (6 percent CGST, 6 percent SGST).One can Verify any GST number here and also get all detail about GST number.

Thanks Sir.

Main issue is whether our own water transported through truck form one place to another will be covered in water distribution service or it will be treated as transport contract.

Ok noted.As per instruction ,FTWZ can hold the goods behalf of buyer but could you please confirm whether FtWZ owner can enter in commercial activities and clear the goods to Indian company behalf of foreign buyer/supplier without agreement?

Please confirm.

also this type of transaction would attract custom duties which can increase the cost burdan by 7.5% to 25% along with applicable cess to indian buyer / foreign supplier

Reference to the replies.

I have a related query. If we transport some material from one place to another its a transport contract. Same thing should be applicable to water.

Water distribution service comes under broad category of Electricity, Gas and Water distribution services. This should be applicable to utility services.

Kindly clarify

There are two services involved in this scenario. Since transportation /tanker is yours, so it is self service. Self service is not supply No GST leviable. You are supplying water by your own truck/tanker etc. So it is supply of service as already mentioned Do not mix two services.
