The list of HS code is classified as follows-

·         Sections: Each section is devoted to different categories including animal and vegetable fat oils, living animal and animal goods, vegetable goods, and many more. There are twenty one sections in HS code list.

Those businessmen having gross revenue of fewer than 1.50 crore doesn’t need to enter harmonized commodity description in the GSTR-1. Those taxpayers having gross revenue between 1.50 to 5 crores are needed to identify the two digits HS code.
