It's too early to assess impact of GST on tourism: Mahesh Sharma
It is too early to understand the impact of GST on the tourism sector, though an early assessment has shown that the single tax regime has brought down the level of taxation, government said on Monday.
Responding to supplementaries in the Lok Sabha, Tourism minister Mahesh Sharma also said he will talk to the GST Council on the possible difficulties houseboat owners in Kerala may face due to GST.
He said while it is too early to understand the impact of GST on the tourism sector, an internal assessment shows that the level of taxation has gone down in the sector.
Responding to another supplementary, he said the proposed 'Incredible India 2' policy will be out soon. It will have provisions to tie up with private sector to help promote tourism in the country.
