Taxes on face masks, sanitisers waived off, B Onions Rs 150 per kilo

All import levies on face masks and the sanitisers were waived off by the government with effect from midnight yesterday.

A maximum retail price of Rs 150 per kilogram for Big Onions has been gazetted effective yesterday.

The gazette notification also imposes a maximum retail price of Rs. 65 per kg of Mysore Dhal and Rs.100 per 425g of canned fish.

Accordingly, these items were subject to a Special Commodity Levy, the Finance Ministry said. Finance Minister and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa has taken this decision considering the higher demand existing for these two items.
