Free food supply at religious places: No GST

The Government is quite clear on its intentions when it comes to applicability of GST. It has been clarified that no tax is attracted on the free food supply at religious places.

However, the ingredients used in making such offerings including sugar, vegetable edible oils, ghee, butter as well as the service for transportation of these goods will attract GST.

Since GST applies to raw materials and services in successive stages of production, it is difficult to administer end use-based tax exemptions or concessions.
