HSN code or Harmonized System Nomenclature code number is an internationally adopted commodity description and coding system developed by the World Customs Organization (WCO). HSN code is used by more than 200 countries as a basis for their customs tariffs. Currently, over 98% of the merchandise in international trade is classified under HSN code With the HSN code acting as a universal classification for goods, the Indian Government has decided to adopt the use of HSN code for classification of goods under GST and levy of GST. In this article, here is the list of HSN Chapters from 72-83 which comes under metals.

HSN code is used for classifying the goods and services. It has been mandated for suppliers to mention the HSN code in the invoices up to certain digits based on the turnover.
