Telangana Haj Committee Wants GST Waived Off For Pilgrims

Telangana State Haj Committee Thursday decided to ask the Centre to waive off the burden of GST and Airport User Development Fees (UDF) on Haj pilgrims, which cost over Rs 15,000 per person.

In a meeting presided by Chairman Mohammed Masiullah Khan, the committee also decided to make all required arrangements for the Haj Camp 2018 and ensure better facilities for the pilgrims. It observed that levy of GST and UDF was a burden on the pilgrims and therefore a representation should be made to the Union government to waive them.
