Are you a food lover and always complains on the way hotels keep out the service tax? The union ministry of food and public distribution, Consumer affairs has some concept for you.
The minister of Union ministry for Food Ram Vilas Paswan said that Paying service tax at hotels and restaurants is only at customer's discretion. "If a customer is not happy with the kind of services they provide in a restaurant they need not pay the service charges at all at that place. Restaurants are billing service charges in addition to taxes. Service charge is optional and everyone should know that" Paswan said.
There is about 5 - 20 % of service tax levied by hotels on the overall bills for food. Apart from Swachh Bharat Cess and Educational Cess.
