Hotels and restaurants will be closed today

Latest News in Mumbai: On Monday, the hotel owners of the state are on a one day strike.

All hotels and restaurants throughout the country will be closed today. The Indian Hotel and Restaurant Association (AHAR) are protesting against the imposition of Service Tax on air conditioned (AC) restaurants announced in the Union Budget for 2013-14.

The central government has imposed 5% service tax on restaurants that are fully or partly air-conditioned from April 1. There is already a 12.63 percent VAT on the total bill.

With the ongoing strike the people who go out in the hotels daily, will be in a fix.
