After the announcement of the new rates of GST according to the 47th GST Council meeting There's plenty of confusion among the general public about a myriad of items. This isn't the only issue, as because of the increase in GST for everyday goods, there is an increase in usage of products. The message is being broadcast through platforms such as Facebook to inform users that GST will be applied to services provided by crematoriums. In this context the government has introduced GST on funeral, burial or mortuary service, like cremation, and it's all at a very large tax rate of 18 percent GST. This is why the government has provided clarification on this issue. |
