Food, drinks in educational institutions to attract 5% GST

The Ministry also noted that if schools up to higher secondary level supply food directly to students, the same would be exempt from the GST.

The central ministry has been looking into the subjection of Food and beverages distributed at educational institutions to Goods and Services Tax (GST) of five percent.

The Ministry of Finance in a public notice stated that the GST on the supply of food and drinks in a mess or canteen in an educational institution would attract five percent tax sans Input Tax Credit (ITC).

The Ministry also noted that if schools up to higher secondary level supply food directly to students, the same would be exempt from the GST.

Earlier this month, the Centre notified that a uniform rate of five percent will be charged towards GST in all railway catering services I n trains or stations.

As per the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC), the decision was taken with a view to remove any doubt or uncertainty in the matter and bring uniformity in the rate of GST applicable to supply of food and drinks made available in trains, platforms or stations.
