1st November 2023 is a significant date for financial rules in India. On this day, a number of changes will come into effect, some of which will have a direct impact on your finances.
The following are some of the key changes that will take place on 1 November 2023:
- Gas prices: The price of commercial gas cylinders will increase by up to Rs 101.50.
- GST e-challan: Businesses with a turnover of at least Rs 100 crore will be required to upload their GST invoices on the e-challan portal within 30 days.
- Laptop imports: The import of laptops, personal computers, and tablets under HSN 8741 will require a legal “License for Restricted Imports” until further notice.
- Lapsed LIC policy reopening: The deadline for reopening a lapsed LIC policy was 31 October 2023.
- BSE transaction fees: The transaction fees for equity derivatives on the Bombay Stock Exchange will increase.
The increase in gas prices will add to the financial burden of businesses and households. The requirement for businesses with a turnover of at least Rs 100 crore to upload their GST invoices on the e-challan portal will help to improve compliance and transparency. The import ban on laptops, personal computers, and tablets could lead to higher prices for these products in India. The deadline for reopening a lapsed LIC policy has expired, so policyholders who missed the deadline may have to pay a penalty to reopen their policies. The increase in BSE transaction fees will increase the cost of trading for investors.
It is important to be aware of these changes so that you can plan your finances accordingly. If you are affected by any of these changes, you may want to contact a financial advisor for advice.
