Forum makes representation on behalf of online gaming industry seeking clarity on GST applicability in specific cases


In May 2022, the GST Council constituted a Group of Ministers (GoM) on casinos, racecourses, and online gaming to oversee the taxation of these supplies. At the 47th meeting of the GST Council last month, the GoM was granted additional time till July 15, 2022 to submit its final report and recommendations. In continuation of our advocacy efforts on GST matters, and in view of the GoM meeting on July 12, 2022, the Forum made a representation to the GoM on behalf of players from the online gaming industry seeking clarity on applicability of GST where online gaming is only a part of the main service and has no separate value.
