Uniformity of taxes expected
Best Design & Debut Hotel — Novotel Kolkata Hotel and Residences
Sandeep Johri, General Manager, Novotel Kolkata Hotel and Residences, explains that he expects uniformity in the tax structure from the upcoming Budget 2017-18. “This will result in consistent pricing in the hotel industry pan-India,” he says. The GST Bill, which is expected to be rolled out soon this year, has raised expectations amongst the travel trade. The industry is hoping to see clarity on the same when it is implemented. “Also, I anticipate that relaxed tax slabs will lead to higher disposable income for people and hence better time for the hotel industry. We look forward to implementation of GST, that will bring everyone on a common ground,” adds Johri.
