The Centre on Wednesday said it will certainly take up the issue of "hefty" GST on hotel rooms' tariff in the meeting of its council as it impacts the tourism industry.
The government is sensitive to the needs of the industry and I am sure that the government will be looking at various dimensions and the fact that is impacting tourism.
The govt.'s statement is significant as it came two days after the Tourism Ministers' Conclave at Kovalam in Kerala, where different states had expressed concern over the high GST rate on hotel rooms and demanded a reduction.
