Following the launch of Goods and Services Tax on July 1, the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) will now impose the GST for renting out its guest houses.
"Since July 1, JNU migrated to GST and has its own GST Identification Number (GSTIN) and there are no issues with its implementation," JNU Joint Registrar (Finance), Shankar Dhar told PTI.
While the varsity has three guest houses - Aravali Guest House, Aravali International Guest House and Gomti Guest House, a JNU circular pointed out that there will be no GST for renting of guest houses, campus sites or other commercial places meant for residential or lodging purposes.
