Following the implementation of Goods and Services Tax on July 1, the Vice-Chancellors (V-Cs) of all Uttar Pradesh (UP) universities on Thursday decided to include GST in commerce as well as management courses from next academic session.
While the decision was taken during a meeting held between UP Governor Ram Naik and V-Cs, state universities were also asked to hold seminars on GST in co-ordination with Commercial Tax department.
However, 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.
