    1. The GST Council decided that the 28 per cent GST would be imposed on hotel rooms with a tariff of Rs 7,500 above against the previous proposal of Rs 5,000 and above. Rooms with tariffs between Rs 2,500 and Rs 7,500 will attract 18 per cent.

  1. I have given my car for servicing and the service provider has quoted a price assuming GST at 28%. I feel it is wrong as for works contract it is just 12%. Further, they do not appear to have reduced the input credits for oils etc. which they have to replace. Please let me know, what should I do? Please also let me know GST for spare parts and labour charges, if any.
