The restaurant is cherging fraudulently VAT at the rate of 28.13% as against the applicable rate of 13.13%. With a note written down on the bill the 28.13% is being derived after adding service charge of 15% and showing it as VAT. The charging of additional 15% is not only the unethical but also fraudulent practice as being charged pretending it to be VAT. I have speciall asked the waiter who again confirmed it is VAT in Haryana. This statement make it to conclude that there is no element of error &emission. A glaring expample could be with the analysis of the dining bill of "Le-Chef" Restaurant in Sector 37 Faridabad. The restaurant is fraudulently charging 28.13% VAT as against 13.13% applicable in the State of Haryana. Rest of the money must be pocketed by misleading you and evading the taxes. While I am planning to initiate action against such unfair and fraudulent practice, in any other restaurant
There are two violations of the provisions:
1. Applicable rate of VAT is 13.13% as against 28.13% being charged and
2. VAT is chargeable on 60% of the basic food bill.
As the restaurant is adapting to fraudulent business practices, it is being rated accordingly.I

The website address on their menu card is also given wrong. The correct url is http://www.lechef.in/
It is expected that correct url is given on menu card.
