The finance department of the Central government  through CBIC has clarified that it has not imposed any GST on Sarais of SGPC near Golden Temple, Amritsar.The Board  has claimed that the Srais managed by religios Institutions/ Charitable Trusts had already been exempted with only condition that the room rent should not exceed Rs 1000. Issuing a statement through series of Tweeets , the Central Board of Indirect Taxes & Customs (CBIC) said that certain sections of the media and social media are spreading the message that GST has recently been imposed with effect from 18 July 2022 even on ‘Sarais’ run by religious/charitable trusts. The CBIC said that it is not true and informed that based on the recommendations of the 47th GST Council meeting, GST exemption on hotel rooms having room rent up to Rs. 1000 per day has been withdrawn. They are now taxed at 12%. “However, there is another exemption which exempts renting of rooms in religious precincts by a charitable or religious trust, where amount charged for the room is less than Rs. 1000/- per day. This exemption continues to be in force without any change,” CBIC stated in a series of tweets. The government also said that three sarais near the Golden Temple are paying the GST on their own and they were never directed for the same. As per the CBIC, it has been stated that the three Sarais managed by SGPC in Amritsar have started paying GST with effect from 18.7.2022. These three Sarais are: 1. Guru Gobind Singh NRI Niwas 2. Baba Deep Singh Niwas 3. Mata Bhag Kaur Niwas. In this regard it is to clarify that no notice has been issued to any of these Sarais. These Sarais may have on their own opted to pay GST.
