Hi Harpal, you have not mentioned the state in which you want to sell. I am assuming you are running your business from Bangalore or any other place in Karnataka.

In Karntaka vat on packaged food is 14.5%. Regarding service tax, if you provide delivery free of charge then no service tax is applicable since delivery in course of sell and forms part of sell.

But, if you charge for delivery seperatly you need to have service tax registration.

Hope you got some clearity on matter, for any further doubts please continue the thread.

Thank you
