GST Indirect Tax: The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) has clarified that the exemption from GST continues as before on renting of rooms in sarai or rest houses attached to religious places. The board has rubbished the media reports claiming that the government has imposed GST on rest houses and inns attached to religious places.

It has been said in the tweet that according to the decision taken in the 47th meeting of the GST Council held in Chandigarh, if a room of less than Rs 1000 is booked in an ordinary hotel or rest house, then the exemption of GST already issued on it will be abolished. It was given and it was decided to levy 12 per cent GST. But according to the board, this decision does not apply to rest houses attached to any religious place. If a room is booked in these rest houses for less than Rs 1000, then the exemption of GST already issued on it continues even today.
