India Eases Rules on Controversial Excise Tax

RAPAPORT... The Indian government relaxed rules on a 1-percent excise duty on jewelry that led to a six-week strike earlier this year.

Under the new terms, businesses with revenue of up to $2.2 million (INR 150 million) are exempt from the tax, whereas the previous cut-off was $1.8 million (INR 120 million).

The change comes after the government set up a committee to interact with the jewelry trade over the tax. The government also accepted several other recommendations made by the committee, including that companies with revenue of less than $14.9 million (INR 1 billion) from manufactured goods will not be audited for the excise duty.
