Levied higher GST at eatery? Call helpline
Mumbai: The legal metrology department will start a helpline to address complaints of restaurants levying higher goods and service tax (GST).
GST at restaurants has been reduced from 18% to 5% from Wednesday. The helpline 1800225900 will be activated from Wednesday itself, said Girish Bapat, state food and civil supplies minister. Restaurant owners are expected to print revised menus with the new taxation rates factored in, he said. “We have asked hotels and chemists to put up boards displaying the tollfree number and GST number,” said Bapat.
