E Invoice for supply of Rice, Goods and Services Tax - GST
|E Invoice for supply of Rice|
E invoice is to be issued or not for supply of Rice(HSN 1006) more than 25 kg single pack (Prepackaged and Labelled).
As per Ministry of Finance FAQ No. F. No. 190354/172/2022-TRU dated 17-7-2022 dated GST is not applicable when the goods(cereals,pulses,flour) are packed and Labelled as per Legal Metrology Act of more than 25Kg or so. When there is no tax do we need to issue E-invoice. Please advise.

There are few legal issued involved here. Keeping that aside, if there is no tax charged on the invoice i.e. bill of supply is issued, e-invoicing is not required to be issued.
Thank you Padmanathan sir.
Yes sir, I am interested to know the Legal aspects in F. No. 190354/172/2022-TRU dated 17-7-2022.

@ Shri Padmanathan Ji,
Please share your take on subject FAO here, so that readers of TMI can take benefit on your insights.
Notification No 01/2017 CT-R dated 28-06-2017 as amended by Notification No. 6/2022-Central Tax (Rate) dated 13-07-2022 w.e.f. 18-07-2022 reads as under:
Schedule I – 2.5%
Clause (ii) of Explanation to Notification - The expression ‘pre-packaged and labelled’ means a ‘pre-packaged commodity’ as defined in clause (l) of section 2 of the Legal Metrology Act, 2009 (1 of 2010) where, the package in which the commodity is pre-packed or a label securely affixed thereto is required to bear the declarations under the provisions of the Legal Metrology Act, 2009 (1 of 2010) and the rules made thereunder.
So any pre-determined quantity ( whether 25 Kgs or more) placed in a package without presence of the purchaser is "pre-packed commodity" as per LM Act, 2009 irrespective of whether it is 25 Kgs or not.
Thanks for sharing your views and note on subject FAQ, Shri Padmanathan Ji!
I Raised this point only because the querist had mentioned they are supplying rice more than 25Kg which is pre-packed and labelled. But It is not clear whether it is wholesale package liable for declaration under rule 24 or not.
Therefore, just highlighted this issue.
As per Legal Metrology (Packaged Commodities) Rules, 2011, “wholesale package” means a package containing- (i) a number of retail packages, where such first mentioned package is intended for sale, distribution or delivery to an intermediary and is not intended for sale direct to a single consumer; or (ii) a commodity sold to an intermediary in bulk to enable such intermediary to sell, distribute or deliver such commodity to the consumer in smaller quantities; or, (iii) packages containing ten or more than ten retail packages provided that the retail packages are labeled as required under the rules
Said FAQ talks about ''a package of say rice containing 50 Kg (in one individual package)'.
One needs more study & research of various provisions related to 'metrology' as well as better understanding of factual aspects before commenting on your post at serial no. 7 above.
Shri Padmanathan ji,
It is a wholesale and required declaration as per LM ACT
FAQ says more than 25 kg no declaration is required, this pack also more than 25kg only
as per the Ministry of Finance FAQ No. F. No. 190354/172/2022-TRU dated 17-7-2022, when goods such as cereals, pulses, and flour are packed and labeled in accordance with the Legal Metrology Act, and exceed 25 kg, GST is not applicable. In such cases where there is no tax liability, it may not be mandatory to issue an e-invoice for these specific transactions.
However, please note that the requirement for issuing e-invoices may also depend on other factors and regulations apart from GST. It is recommended to consult with the relevant tax authorities or seek professional advice to ensure compliance with all applicable regulations and guidelines regarding e-invoicing for your specific business circumstances.
We encourage you to engage with a tax expert or reach out to the appropriate authorities who can provide accurate and up-to-date information regarding the issuance of e-invoices for your particular situation, considering all relevant aspects of the transaction and the prevailing legal requirements.
