On 20 November 2015, Sri Lanka through Extraordinary Gazette 1941/43 - 2015 made the following amendments to the applicable Special Commodity Levy -

  • The cap on levy on fresh, chilled, or frozen fish under HS 0302 and 0303 has been increased from "10% or Rs. 10 per kg" to "10% or Rs. 50 per kg", whichever is higher
  • Levy on fresh and dried dates is introduced at Rs. 60 per kg.

 
The measure is valid for 6 months. The levy on fish and dates was initially extended unchanged on 20 May 2016 for 6 months, but the levy on fish was increased on 8 November 2016 (see related measure).
The Special Commodity Levy is a composite duty on the product and no other tax, duty, cess etc. is applicable on the said product while the levy is valid
