Earlier, actor Rahul Bose posted a video on Instagram complaining about how one of the luxury hotels charged Rs 442 for two bananas from him. He made a sarcastic video on social media and revealed that he ordered a pair of bananas after working out at a hotel in Chandigarh where he was staying and when he checked the bill, it showed an amount of Rs 442.5 that also included GST.
Soon after his tweet went viral, The Federation of Hotel & Restaurant Associations of India (FHRAI) has made its stance clear on the issue of Rs 25000 penalty that was imposed by the Chandigarh excise and taxation department on JW Marriott hotel, for violation of section 11 of CGST (illegal collection of tax on an exempted item) in connection with actor Rahul Bose’s tweet over the price of two bananas served to him by the hotel.
