Haryana allows reimbursement of GST on Covid items’ donations

The Haryana government has allowed reimbursement of goods and service tax paid by companies, non-governmental organisations and individuals on purchase of 15 items including Covid vaccines, remdesivir injections, ventilators and oxygen cylinders that they have donated free of cost to the state government or state-run hospitals.

Haryana is the first state to give such a relaxation.

The Centre has already waived integrated GST (IGST) till June 30 on the import of Covid-related relief material donated or received from outside India for free distribution.

“In order to encourage such efforts, it is necessary in the public interest to facilitate donation of such items appearing in the table annexed herewith by way of reimbursement of GST (including the state, central or IGST portions), if any, already paid on such Covid-related items,” the state government said in a notification seen by ET.

The relaxation will also apply to donations made to a hospital or institution permitted by the Haryana government to receive such material through the health and family welfare department of the state.
