The Federation of Associations in Indian Tourism & Hospitality (FAITH), a policy federation of all ten associations representing tourism, travel and hospitality industries has asked for five rationalisation measures for its sectors. It said restaurants should also be allowed the option of charging GST at 12% with full input tax credits and the rate should be delinked from any room tariffs if they are part of hotels.
The body which represents organizations like - ADTOI, ATOAI, FHRAI, HAI, IATO, ICPB, IHHA, ITTA, TAAI & TAFI -- has asked that hotels be allowed to charge IGST to enable seamless availability of credit across India to all travel agents and tour operators to build a sustainable business out of the domestic holiday segment, meetings and conventions in India.
