No GST is applicable on free food supplied in anna kshetras run by religious institutions


No GST is applicable on free food supplied in anna kshetras run by religious institutions

Prasadam supplied by religious places like temples, mosques, churches, gurudwaras, dargahs, etc. attracts Nil CGST and SGST or IGST, as the case may be.

There are media reports suggesting that GST applies on free food supplied in anna kshetras run by religious institutions. This is completely untrue. No GST is applicable on such food supplied free.
Further, prasadam supplied by religious places like temples, mosques, churches, gurudwaras, dargahs, etc. attracts Nil CGST and SGST or IGST, as the case may be.

However, some of the inputs and input services required for making prasadam would be subject to GST. These include sugar, vegetable edible oils, ghee, butter, service for transportation of these goods etc. Most of these inputs or input services have multiple uses. Under GST regime, it is difficult to prescribe a separate rate of tax for sugar, etc. when supplied for a particular purpose.

Further, GST being a multi-stage tax, end use based exemptions or concessions are difficult to administer. Therefore, GST does not envisage end use based exemptions. It would, therefore, not be desirable to provide end use based exemption for inputs or input services for making prasadam or food for free distribution by religious institutions.

7th Pay Commission: Pay, allowances raise new hopes for central government employees


7th Pay Commission: Pay, allowances raise new hopes for central government employees

New Delhi: After long wait, the 7th Pay Commission award has been fully implemented including allowances, which has been implemented from July 1, it has increased new hopes among the central government employees that their allowances has been hiked.

The Union Cabinet cleared the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission in respect of the hike in basic pay and pension on June 29 and government notified higher allowances on July 7, 2017 for its 4.8 million employees and 5.2 million pensioners, in a bid to ease the inflationary pressure.

"Allowances contribute 63 percent in the pay hike recommendation. The allowances which the commission proposed is very substantial. So, the central government employees now not only get 14.28 per cent hike in pay but also to get new allowances, which providing for full compensation to the central government employees," a top Finance Ministry's official told.

Government jobs in India have been less rewarding in terms of pay and allowances. Apart from a sense of job security and perceived power, most of the employees have to struggle to make ends meet with the cost of living going up every year.

The central government employees are seeing inflation catch up with their pay rises as the cost of living rises faster despite of government figure.

With the current basic pay hike and steep inflation, it is not possible for central government employees to make ends meet. It is also impossible to sustain with their current basic pay without hike in allowances. Inflation has climbed steadily over the past few years, which the new allowances will help to compensate.

Accordingly, the new allowances will hopefully attract central government employees to live with dignity and the quality of service delivery in central government offices is expected to improve which will in turn contribute to higher productivity and growth for the nation.
