Reason For Adoption of HSN in India
By adopting HSN classification, India will rise and gain recognition and acceptance from other global players. The application of GST rates globally will become systematic, reducing the costs of international trade. The HSN codes declared on the products will be automatically identified and the appropriate GST rates applied. Thus, using the correct codes becomes imperative, as it will simplify trade and make this new GST regime globally accepted leading to harmonization in trade
HSN classification consists of sections, chapters, headings and subheadings. Each section contains several chapters under which several headings and subheadings are listed depending upon the products and its components. For example, Umbrellas would have an HSN code of 6601. The first two digits, 66, represent the chapter under umbrellas and accessories; followed by 01 representing the heading under which umbrellas and sun umbrellas fall into.
