HP CM urges Centre to reduce GST on ropeways and unconventional modes of transportation

Hamirpur(HP), September 20(UNI) The Himachal Pradesh government on Monday urged the Centre that the GST Council should consider reducing the rate of GST from 18 per cent to five per cent by adding a specific entry related to ropeways and other unconventional modes of transportation in the category of services covered under five per cent GST.

In a letter to Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur apprised that the state government has taken a decision to use the concept of ropeways for transportation of passengers and goods throughout the state. The objective behind this decision is to connect the left out habitations where construction of roads is not environmentally and economically feasible. It also aims at connecting new places of tourist attraction and exploring new opportunities from a tourism point of view for employment generation and economic growth of the state. Yet another objective is to provide first and last-mile connectivity as per the requirement across the state.
