Hi,

 

Kulfi is classifiable under heading 2105 and attracts 18% GST

 

Yes, you can claim ITC.

Kulfi also has same ingredients as ice cream so technically it's ice cream but if you want litigation you can go under 0404 as it's a more general head then 2105 and you can claim ITC under 2105.

 

Hope you find the information helpful if you do please rate it 5 and provide your valuable feedback for my improvement.

Thank you

Hello Sir,

 

The government clarified that kulfi — the Indian frozen dessert — would attract 18 per cent GST, like ice-cream. Besides, idli-dosa batter would attract 18 per cent GST under the food mixes category.

 

However, you can go for it-0404 but it is subject to litigation.

Hi

 

According to the CBIC FAQs, it's 2105.

However, the FAQs don't hold the legal position. It may be challenged.

Hello,

 

HSN Code for kulfi would be 2105 attracting tax at 18%.

There is no direct notification for the same, it is clarified by way of GST Rates FAQs.
