GST Decreased Ravana Height. Ravan’s height, costume made expensive by GST burden. Due to the imposition of goods and services tax, the prices of bamboo has increased, which has influenced the business of making Ravana. With the burden of GST law applied in the country since July 1, 2017, this period has diminished. So even in most parts of the country, Ravana is being made with great enthusiasm this time, but making Ravan’s effigy this year is making the artisans a little expensive. If you go to Tartarpur in western Delhi, you will start seeing the man-made statue of Ravana outside the metro station. Artisans who make effigies from 5 feet to 40 feet, believe that making Ravan this time is making them a little expensive.
GST Decreased Ravana Height
In 1973, Chuttan Lal, who came here from Sekandrabad, started making effigies and since then this tradition is coming. Chattan Lal is known as Ravana Baba. Baba’s face with Ravana is now under the supervision of Sanjay. Sanjay said that Ravan, prepared in Tarapur, goes to states like Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh etc. He said that the effigy of Ravana, who has crossed the country’s borders and made in Tarapur, has also been in America this time. At the same time, he also said that earlier orders were received from countries other than the US.

Sanjay said that these three things are used prominently in bamboo, paper and wire making ravan. Bamboo from this has become expensive this time. However, the paper is sold at last year’s prices. The price of bamboo has been increased by 12 percent GST this time. Sanjay said that the price of a bamboo (20 bamboo) has gone up from Rs 1,000 to Rs 1,200 this year. Which was Rs 700-800 in the previous year. Singh said that in the form of a Ravan one hundred and a half bamboo bamboo and one cowrie has 20 bamboo. In this way 30 bamboos are used in making a Ravan.
