As the present EC is involved in a number of important issues concerning the benefits of the members of the Association which requires its continuation till they are completed:
1. Since the increase of service tax from 4.5 percent to 9 percent in Jan 2017,the President and Executive members are running from one govt department to another meeting the various officers concerned to voice the objections for the unreasonable increase .The increase in service tax has affected the business of the members.
2.Taking advice of Ernst and Young and filing various representations with respective ministries for the stand of the Association with respect to GST on outbound tour operators.The president and Office bearers have had extensive meetings with the concerned authorities and are in constant touch involving implementation of GST.
3.The Association has signed a MOU with the Govt of RAS AL KHAIMAH for promotion of destination and holding convention of members in Sept2017. Since the MOU is with the govt ,the Govt officials feel more comfortable dealing with the present EC to take it forward and organise it for the benefit of its members.
