Petitioning Federation of Hotel & Restaurant Associations in India Tell Restaurants to stop charging 14% Service Tax on 100% of the bill

Restaurants are overcharging us by taking advantage of unclear tax rules! What they are doing is illegal and we must hold them accountable.

When you eat out a restaurant, check your bill. You will find that some restaurants charge you 14% service tax on the full bill. This is illegal! A recent Finance Ministry directive has made it clear that restaurants can only charge 14% on 40% of the total bill – that is 5.6%.

That is why I have started this petition asking the Federation of Hotel and Restaurants Association of India (FHRAI) to issue a directive to all its restaurants – asking them not to overcharge. Sign my petition.

I enjoy going out and I don’t mind paying for what I owe. But I refuse to pay extra tax which I am not liable to pay at all.

It is shocking that restaurants have been fraudulently overcharging us! They have taken advantage of confusion surrounding the rules and we, their loyal customers who have suffered.

Sign my petition and ask the FHRAI to issue a directive to all restaurants asking them to charge only the right amount of service tax.

Recently, a customer had to call in the police in order to stop a restaurant from overcharging him. If we join our voices and collectively demand the same – we can ensure that no restaurant overcharges us.

As consumers, we should be aware of our rights and demand them. Sign my petition and make sure the FHRAI issues directives to all restaurants asking them not to overcharge.
