Dear Sir / Madam,
Mr X is doing a water business also having his own Water plant, and his turnover is around 1 crore for the year.
He sells water with label Packing and also sells in a container without labelling.
He does both Taxable and Exempted sales.
My question, when he choose Composition Scheme should he need to pay 1% tax for exempted sales also?

You can opt for COMPOSITION SCHEME Sir if your Aggregate Turnover does not exceeds Rs. 1.5 crore.
As far as the GST Rate is concerned, it is 1% for the Manufacturer ( 0.5% CGST + 0.5% SGST ). This 1% GST needs to be paid on the Turnover in State or Union Territory. Even on Exempted Supplies , you need to pay 1% GST.
Only the Traders are required to pay 1% GST on their "TAXABLE SUPPLY OF GOODS" ( i.e. they are not required to pay GST on exempted supply ) vide Notification No. 01/2018 - CT , dated 01.01.2017.
Refer Notification No. 08/2017 - CT, dated 27.06.2017 read with Notification No. 01/2018 - CT, dated 01.01.2018.
