KTEG Act is most ignored tax law. Consulted many people but no one seem to have an idea about it.

Updating the general rules of Act.

Entry Tax when applicable:

There shall be levied and collected a tax on 2 [entry of any goods specified in the FIRST SCHEDULE]2 into a local area for consumption, use or sale therein, at such rates not exceeding five percent of the value of the goods as may be specified 3 [retrospectively or prospectively by the State Government by notification and different dates]3 and different rates may be specified in respect of different goods or different classes of goods or different local areas.

From above wording we understand that Tax can not be more than 5% and is applicable if brought from one local area to another local area.

Local Area means an area under the Municipality, Panchayat etc.

Which Good are covered?

List of such goods is given in Schedule one of KTEG Act.

What is the rate of Tax?

Rate is different for different goods but the normal rate is 2%.

What is the rate of Interest?

Rate of Interest is 1.5% for each month.

I think the schedule given by you is very old. I am attaching here with a pdf file kindly refer to the same. kindly refer to the same KTEG.pdf 

Also many people have a myth that entry tax is applicable only on inter state purchase how ever it is also applicable when goods are transferred from one local area to another within karnataka.

File - kteg.pdf is not uploaded it seems.

Are Generators/Gensets are included in the schedule 1 of the act?

Posted 1 year, 8 months ago by A Yasasvi

Generator or Gensets are not included in KTEG Schedule.

Posted 1 year, 8 months ago by Mukesh Jain CA

Thanks Mukesh for your advice.


I have one more question, if it is not included in the schedule, does that mean that there is not tax liability?

Posted 1 year, 8 months ago by A Yasasvi


How to calculate Entry Tax?, Is it 2% on Gross amount of the bill or on the cost of goods?

Recenty we purchased 3 Machines from Coimbatore, and they charged CED 12.5% on Cost of Machines and CST 2% on Cost of Machines+CED.

Now how do I pay the Entry tax?

Kindly clarify the same.

Thanks in Advance.
