New items reportedly to be levied the GST include spinach, long beans, peas, potatoes, sweet corn, grapes and coconut oil. 

Customs Department director-general Subramaniam Tholasy confirmed this and said a statement will be issued soon, The Star reported.

“It’s only a few items not consumed by the masses,” he reportedly said.

Introduced on April 1, 2015, at six percent,  the GST is now zero-rated for fresh food items
