Union Minister Tourism and FAITH develop a joint strategy to tackle GST

In a highly involved and a patient interaction with FAITH, union minister Dr Mahesh Sharma, fully understood the implications of a favourable GST regime for tourism & hospitality in India & the perils of an unfavourable one.
He appreciated the criticality of amending Section 2(44) (c) in draft GST law for exports status & the significance of keeping a GST rate less than 10 per cent for domestic tourism industry.

Dr. Sharma has proposed the very relevant approach to sensitise & engage with key political leadership at the union government level of this criticality & how a favourable GST regime for tourism can -spur jobs induced by tourism upto 9 crores across our hinterlands, of how it will boost our forex inflow to ~ $ 30-35 billion annually & reduce the current account deficit of India & how it will add to our GDP through additional infrastructure and demand creation in tourism.

He has personally promised to handhold this exercise to create a very growth oriented tourism & hospitality industry.
