A notification to this effect is likely to be issued on Tuesday.
The notification will be later placed in the next meeting of the GST Council.
Sources said the finance ministry has proposed to issue a "general exemption" notification under a section of Customs Act to exempt goods from Basic Customs Duty and IGST, which are "imported/supplied for donation for the relief and rehabilitation of the people of Kerala affected by the floods".
