I would request Delhi Government to initiate identification, root cause analysis and the remedies in Restaurant/Banquet Halls and Hotel Industry/ In-door and Out-door Caterers in Delhi. One of the area of the corruption is levying of service charge compulsory, illegal charging of VAT on 40% or 60% of the value of food bill which is already being taxed under service tax, fake bills, evasion of taxes, poor quality/ services, under invoicing, over-charging, impact of corrupt practices of Sales Tax department and Municipal Corporation. more

What is the problem with this avatar of Lord Shiva. He is unnecessarily poking his nose in every post. Seems off-balance. more  
Govt should keep watch on such illegal surcharge.or respective
MLA/volunteer should remain watch in the area. more  
The way restaurants are running in Delhi is like a horse without master. Is there any chk, amount of sales tax they are charging is really deposited. Quite possible they have taken a compounding scheme and depositing 1% of turnover.
What is the logic of service charge when they are sitting with a restaurant too serve the people. Cost of food itself is charges of the services, now if the want to charge for bringing kitchen to guest table, they should not open a restaurant. This is the minimum they are supposed to do if they have opened a restaurant.
If we count together a customer end up paying 30% extra to the food bill he has eaten which is nothing but a robbery and should come under chk.
Very serious matter to be taken up on priority. more  
Service charge is not a statutory requirement for customers to pay but the restaurant management charge it on their own. It varies from 2-15% depending upon the place you go. I think only simplification of tax structure can only stop the manipulations done by restaurants in VAT.. more  
This is possible when Delhi Govt. can restrict the total members to 500 nos and maximum spending per person can be defined. more
