A message is viral since yesterday which claims if you pay your utility bills through credit cards, you will end up paying double GST
“Friends – Do not make payment of utility bills like Telephone, Electricity, Gas, Mobile etc by Credit Card from now. You will be paying GST twice, once for the service, second on the credit card amount. Use cash or Internet banking. Share this information.
Fwd as received “
Dr Hasmukh Adhia, Revenue Secretary, Ministry of Finance calls this fake.
