Sports, Martial arts (Karate and others) coaching classes are currently under the 18% GST slab.

On one side the government says we want to encourage participation in sports in the country and on the other side there is 18% GST on the classes. The 18% slab makes it look like as if this is a luxury item. Also, more than 90% enrolments in such classes are those of Kids. So, either the parents have to spend more or the trainers do not get their due as to attract students they will need to compromise on the fee.

For martial arts classes, people join them for self defense and as an art form or sport. Levying of GST on such classes is even more absurd. In either case it is not something that would encourage more people to join the classes. 

The sports and finance ministries plus the GST council need to review this and remove the GST levied on all types of sports classes.
