GST ex­emp­tion on ser­vices to Nepal, Bhutan

DNA (Daily News & Analysis) Mumbai Edition - - FRONT PAGE -

The Min­istry of Fi­nance is­sued a gazette an­nounc­ing the re­moval of the GST on sup­ply of ser­vices to Nepal and Bhutan traders against pay­ments made in the In­dian cur­rency, the Hi­malayan Times re­ported on Sun­day. Ear­lier, the GST was ex­empted only if the ser­vice sup­plier re­ceived pay­ment in con­vert­ible for­eign cur­rency, cre­at­ing ex­tra bur­den on Nepali traders as they usu­ally make pay­ments in In­dian Ru­pee.

A day after it re­ported nine deaths of new­borns in 24 hours, the Ahmed­abad Civil Hospi­tal on Sun­day saw three more deaths in its neona­tal care unit.

The state gov­ern­ment, fol­low­ing the pre­lim­i­nary in­quiry, gave a clean chit to the hospi­tal. It stated that against the av­er­age deaths of four in­fants in a day, nine are “only slightly higher than the av­er­age.”

The three-mem­ber com­mit­tee headed by Dr RL Dixit, deputy di­rec­tor, med­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion, which looked into the in­ci­dent, said the ba­bies were pre­ma­ture and suf­fered from a host of com­pli­ca­tions in­clud­ing poorly de­vel­oped lungs.
