‘GST To Hit Aviation Sector By Rs 5,700 Cr A Year’


The aviation industry will take a annual hit of Rs 5,700 crore following the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST), domestic airlines told the Finance Ministry recently.

“The airline industry will be hit by Rs 5,700 crore per annum and the GST will make the flourishing sector sick.
