Rent in hospitals exempted from GST

In a relief to numerous ailing patients and their families across India, the government announced in a press briefing today that rent paid by patients for hospital rooms will be exempted from the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

The government made this announcement while issuing clarifications on levy of GST on the tariff for various accommodation services, the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC).

The decision is in keeping with the Modi-government’s intention to make healthcare affordable to all citizens and keeping healthcare out of the ambit of GST.
