23 May, 2017 The GST rate announced for the pharmaceutical industry is contrary to what the industry had been expecting. Though the sector had been wishing for zero tax, the GST Council has capped the rate of life-saving drugs at 5% and other formulations at 12%.

Everything else falls under the 12% bracket. As reported in Economic Times
