Government services such as issuing of passport, birth certificate and driving licence would attract the GST, according to a revised draft of the Central GST Bill, introduced in Parliament this week. This is a departure from the draft Bill introduced in November, which had included these services in Schedule IV, a list of exemptions. The latest version specifically states these would qualify as “business”.
