When you guys are in the market and you desperately need to use the toilet, what would you do? The only option you have is to search for a public toilet. If it is not available, I think many of us would search for restaurants or cinema hall, right?
Even I did this many times. We have been doing this for years, but turns out we might have to change the habit now.
The government is already asking the hotel& restaurant owners to allow at least women and kids to use their toilets for free and few of them have accepted too. Generally, if people use public toilets, they need to pay a fee for it. But what do you say when a restaurant charges you for using their loo and he is one of the customers.
Unless paying a bill is not an issue. What’s the serious thing about it is the restaurant has given a proper bill with GST, SGST and ‘parcel charges’ applied.
This incident took place in Tamil Nadu’s Erode and the man uploaded the picture of the bill on Reddit with a caption ‘When restaurants start charging you for just using the toilet’.
The bill given to the man has a base cost of Rs.10 plus a parcel charge along with GST. One can just wonder what he might have got packed on his trip to the lavatory.
How People Reacted To It?
GST has become a part of our lives but still, there is a limit as to where it can be added and where it should not be added.
