Govt. Imposes Cess On Pulses

The government has proposed to impose an agricultural infrastructure and development cess of 20 per cent on lentil masoor, 30 per cent on Kabuli chana, 40 per cent on peas and 50 per cent on Bengal gram and chickpeas. However, its impact would be zero as it would be deducted from basic custom duty. Old basic custom duty for peas was 50%, now it would be 10% plus 40% cess. For lentils old basic custom duty was 30%, now it would be 10% plus 20% cess, for kabuli chana it was 40%, now it would be 10% basic and 30% cess, for Bengal gram it was 60%, now basic is 10% & 50% cess. So there is no overall impact on duty structure.
