The Delhi cabinet on Monday cleared an exemption on luxury tax on hotel tariff incurred for the stay of delegates participating in the Commonwealth Games 2010.
The cabinet also cleared a new industrial policy for the city that proposes to encourage non-polluting and knowledge based industries in Delhi, apart from the creation of two Special Economic Zones (SEZs) in Baproula for the IT and gems and jewellery industries.
The luxury tax exemption would be extended to all rooms booked by the Organising Committee for accommodating delegates from the Games federation, member countries of the Commonwealth Games Associations, technical experts of international sports federations and broadcasting/media right holders for the Games.
“The cabinet has decided to grant exemption from payment of luxury tax for a month between September 16, 2010 and October 16, 2010 on hotel accommodation booked by the Organising Committee,” said Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit.
