HSN Code and GST on Milk, Butter, Egg and Honey

The GST Council introduced the HSN Code and GST on milk, butter, egg and honey to introduce common tax across India. All entities involved in supplying milk and milk products must obtain GST. The HSN code and GST on milk, butter, egg and honey are contained in Chapter 4 of the HSN Code. However, this Chapter does not cover:

  • Products obtained from milk by replacing one or more of its natural constituents (for example, butyric fats) by another substance (for example, oleic fats) (heading 1901 or 2106); or”;
