Rates under GST are vastly different than what you would find before the tax policy change.
As consumers, we are hardly aware of the components included in the restaurant bills. Next time do check your bill to see if the proper GST or goods or services tax rate has been levied. The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) on Tuesday clarified on rates of GST for restaurants.
Food served at restaurants attract tax at two rates under GST - 12 per cent and 18 per cent (including both CGST (Central GST) and SGST (State GST)) - depending on whether it is an AC restaurant or whether the restaurant has the licence to serve alcohol.
