Consolidation of taxes under GST is expected to help create a level-playing field for bigger textile manufacturers. But smaller or unorganised players will not be able to use some of the current practices to keep themselves competitive.

The textile sector is one of the largest contributors to India’s exports, accounting for approximately 11 per cent of total outbound shipments. India’s overall textile exports during FY 2015-2016 stood at 40 billion dollars and the industry size is expected to reach 223 billion dollars by 2021.

Most textile products are likely to be either exempted or taxed at a lower rate. However, even at the merit rate of  12 per cent tax would be higher than the prevailing VAT rate of four to six per cent across various states. Since exports under GST would be zero rated, this would give a competitive boost to textile exports from India, which is facing stiff competition from Bangladesh, Pakistan etc.

As petroleum products (diesel used in running generators or machinery) are likely to be outside GST purview, at least in the initial years, inputs will continue to be non-creditable. Since a majority of textile units are in the medium and small segment, ease of compliance would be a major relief.
