In the memorandum, the TTAG has sought a staggered rationalisation in the tax slabs on hotel room tariffs.
The existing GST on rooms priced at Rs 7,500 and above is 28 per cent and on rooms priced in the range of Rs 2,500 to 7,499 it is 18 per cent and 28 per cent respectively.
"We have requested GST to be reduced to 12 per cent for both price slabs," according to the association's president Savio Messias.
For hotel rooms priced between Rs 1,000-Rs 2,499, the GST is currently levied at 12 per cent, which the Association wants reduced to 5 per cent.
The Association in its memorandum has also demanded delinking of GST levied on in-house restaurants in hotels from their respective room rates.
"GST charged on restaurant services should be delinked from room rates and a flat 5 per cent GST should be levied," the memorandum said.
Goa is one of the top tourism destinations in the country and attracts nearly eight million tourists annually. In recent times however, tourism industry stakeholders have complained that high taxation was proving to be a deterrent to the prospects of the hotel and tourism industry.
