    The Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council on Tuesday decided to remove a host of tax exemptions and hike rates for an even larger number of mass-consumption items.
    It approved a proposal to impose a 12 percent tax on hotel rooms costing below Rs 1,000 per day. So far, only hotels above the threshold were charged 12 percent GST. The Council also agreed to levy a 5 percent GST without input tax credit on hospital rooms with rent above Rs 5,000, excluding intensive care units (ICUs).
