TIRUPATI: The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) Trust Board has appealed to the Centre to exempt from GST the ingredients that it purchases for making laddus and other prasadams.
The TTD made the request through Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu in a memorandum addressed to the GST and submitted to him.
Speaking to mediapersons here on Saturday, the Finance Minister said that the TTD was seeking exemption from GST for ingredients not only for laddus but also for items used for pooja and serving pilgrims at choultries, guest houses and the sale of human hair and other revenue sources.
The Finance Minister said he would take the issue to the notice of GST Council. He said the GST Council had promised to exempt laddu ingredients from the taxable items list.
