GST regime: Mobile recharges go costlier

Srinagar

As Kashmir has entered into GST regime, the common people have started feeling ripples of its drawbacks. Among other sectors, telecom is one such where the end consumer has to bear the brunt.

The tax on mobile recharges has seen a sharp spike. A person who recharges Rs 20 gets Rs 15 or Rs 16 talk time. Earlier it would vary from Rs 17 to Rs 18. A recharge of Rs 100 would mean less than Rs 85 talktime. Rest is tax.

People have started reacting to the spike.

They have been making loathing comments against GST. “This is injustice,” one person who had recharged his number on Monday afternoon, told Kashmir Life who works at a restaurant in Sriangar as a waiter.

Under GST regime some items and transaction will go cheaper while as others will go expensive. Some would remain same as they were before GST.
