GST rates: Ola, Uber rides and movie-going to be cheaper | Check the list
India fixed four categories of taxes for services such as transport, entertainment and banking services on Friday, taking a step closer to meeting a July 1 deadline for the rollout of the country’s biggest tax reform.
Eating out at small restaurants and dhabas, hiring a cab or staying in a non-5 star hotel will be cheaper under the new Goods and Services Tax regime. Education, health and public transport will be exempt.
The decisions came at the end of a two-day meeting of the GST Council headed by Union finance Arun Jaitley and which also includes his counterparts from states. The council has already fixed GST rates for household items and manufactured goods.
