 breaking news

On Thursday, the Sikkim government said it will begin a compliance drive from February 17 next to compel hoteliers to pay goods and services tax (GST) on time.

It was observed that the contribution of GST and other taxes from the hotel industry to the overall state revenue remains below par given the fact that the state is a major tourist destination, Jigme Dorjee Bhutia, Commercial Tax Commissioner, told reporters.

The compliance drive may even involve arresting the defaulters in accordance with Section 69 of the 2017 Sikkim Goods and Services Tax Act, Bhutia said, asking all hoteliers to pay GST and other taxes before February 17.
