Mess facility provided to students and staff will attract 5 percent GST irrespective of whether it is provided by educational institution or outside contractor, the finance ministry said today.

The Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) has issued the clarification in view of queries regarding the tax liability and the rate of Goods and Services Tax (GST) leviable on services provided by a college hostel mess.

"Supply of food or drink provided by a mess or canteen is taxable at 5 per cent without Input Tax Credit... It is immaterial whether the service is provided by the educational institution itself or the institution outsources the activity to an outside contractor," the CBEC said.
