NEW DELHI: The GST Council is expected to reduce GST on under-construction houses to 5% and on affordable ones to 3% without allowing input tax credit, from the existing level of 12% and 8%.

The council in its last meeting formed a group of ministers under the chairmanship of Gujarat deputy CM Nitin Patel to evolve a consensus rate of GST. The panel has submitted the report suggesting a reduction in the levy.

Realtors have been running a campaign suggesting that the proposed move will push up prices of under-construction houses up to 4,000 square feet as the input tax credit will be done away with.

It will, however, result in a reduction in the price of super premium houses of over Rs 10,000 per sq ft where the existing effective rates go up to 10%.

The tax on these properties under the new regime will come down to 5% leading to reduction in the prices.
