FHRAI delegation demands uniform GST at 12% for hospitality industry

Recently a senior delegation from Federation of Hotels Restaurants Association of India (FHRAI) has presented a representation to the Union Finance Ministry Officials highlighting that the proposal of 28% Goods and Service Tax (GST) slab will adversely impact the hospitality and tourism industry.

The delegation has requested the government to relook at the current proposal and advocate a uniform hospitality GST at 12% across the country.

The delegation has further requested the government to review the Luxury Tax limit of Rs 5000/- and enhance it suitably as service tax proposal under the new GST regime has been set at 28% for hotel tariffs above Rs 5,000/-.
