Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis today said that his government cancelled the Rajgurunagar-Khed Special Economic Zone (SEZ) as injustice was done to the farmers of the area.

Fadanvis was speaking to a farmers' delegation, led by Hatkanangle Lok Sabha MP Raju Shetti, which met him to thank him for this decision. "The government has always given priority to the interests of farmers. When acquiring land, maximum compensation should be given. Efforts have been made to see that the rehabilitation of projected affected people is done well," Fadnavis said. Shetti hailed the Maharashtra CM's decision as positive and pro-farmer. In 2007, 1,250 hectares of land was acquired for the SEZ from the four villages in 2007. According to the contract, 15 per cent of this land was to be ...

Hotel, restaurant services provided to SEZ units taxable under GST: AAR 10.5.2018 General News
Hotel or restaurant services provided to SEZ developers or units will not be treated as 'zero-rated' supplies and hence will be taxable under the Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime, the Authority for Advance Ruling (AAR) has said. In an application filed before the Karnataka bench of the AAR, the applicant had sought to clarify whether hotel accommodation and restaurant services provided by them, within the premises of the hotel, to the employees and guests of SEZ units be treated as supply of goods and services. "The hotel accommodation and restaurant services being provided by the applicant, within the premises of the hotel, to the employees and guests of SEZ units, cannot be treated as supply of goods and services to SEZ units in Karnataka and hence they are the intra-state supply and are taxable accordingly," the AAR order said. In the earlier service tax regime, the law provided that only services which are labelled as "authorised operation" will be treated as zero-rated supply .
