Excise duty cut on MMF hinted at FICCI TAG meet
The Government hinted at lowering excise duty on man-made fibre (MMF) in the new Textile Policy in order to boost investment to meet growing demand from the synthetic textiles industry. While cotton fibre attracts no duty, the Government levies 10 per cent excise duty on MMF.
