NEW DELHI: Traders body CAIT Thursday urged the government to lower GST rates on various products, including auto parts and aluminium utensils.

Submitting a white paper on GST (Goods and Services Tax) to Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, it also suggested to reduce the tax rate for items like hardware, mobile covers, ice cream, health drinks, paints, marble, used vehicles, and two wheelers.
