The NAA said the battery sold by the company is classified as 'Lithium-ion' which attract 18 per cent GST with effect from July 26, 2018. Whereas, the complainant had alleged that the tax rate was reduced to 18 per cent with effect from January 1, 2019, from 28 per cent earlier, but there was no change in selling price of the product.
