Luxury tax exempted for Hotels hosting CWG delegates

The Delhi government Monday granted exemption from payment of luxury tax to hotels providing accommodation to delegates and technical experts during the Commonwealth Games this year.

After a cabinet meeting here, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said it is estimated that the amount of exemption in luxury tax will be around Rs.300 million.

The exemption will be provided for a month (from Sep 16 to Oct 16) on hotel accommodation booked by the Commonwealth Games Organizing Committee for delegates from the Commonwealth Games Federation, member countries of the Commonwealth Games Associations, technical experts of International Sports Federations and broadcasting/media right holders for the games.

"The taxes mean all taxes - duties and imposts of the host country, the host state and host city. The organizing committee will have to provide a detailed list of delegates/technical experts," she said.

Dikshit said the decision has been taken as per the "Host City Contract" which says that the host city will use all reasonable endeavors to minimize the imposition of taxes on the import of supply and equipment required by the Commonwealth Games Federation, Commonwealth Games Associations, and accredited representatives.
