It will not be a favour, but a corrective step by the Government of India
To Remove GST (Jazia) from Langer.
Millions of people from across India and the globe have free food in Langar (Community Kitchen) at Darbar Sahib, Amritsar every month. Langer is a five century old tradition founded by the Sikh Gurus which fed the poor as well as acted as a great leveler as all had to partake it sitting at the same level without any discrimination.
Earlier there was no tax on purchases of rations to be used in the Langar as SGPC, which manages Darbar Sahib and other historical Gurudwaras, was kept out of the purview of Value Added Tax (VAT) but now the Government of India, while starting the GST regime has kept SGPC also under Tax net.
GST Council has already given waiver to Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam, which manages prominent Temples in Andhra Pradesh even as the Prasadam at the Temples is given to devotees against payment of money. We want the Government of India to end such discrimination and return to the old practice of having no Tax on purchases of rations for Langar, the free food, at Darbar Sahib and other Gurudwara being managed by SGPC.
