Restaurants to close early on 30 June for GST launch
In view of the upcoming GST launch date on 1 July, the restaurants and bars will close early on 30 June.
As per reports, this decision has been taken to avoid confusion with the Goods and Services Tax launch.
The eating places that usually remain open till after midnight, may shut their doors by 11:30 PM. In some cases they might also take orders till midnight but nothing after that.
It is reported that systems will have to be rebooted for GST software to come into effect and businesses want to be ready the next day.
The cost of eating out is expected to increase after the GST comes into effect.
