Also, the rates of GST on Mehndi products and marble, granite, hospitality sector and Rajasthani horses should be reduced, she added.

In the 22nd meeting of the GST Council, the chief minister thanked the Union minister on the decision to provide relief to the rates for small and medium enterprises.
