I've become aware of certain cheaper guest houses (<1,000 rps.) adding luxury tax. In one case at Royal Lodge Bangalore, 20% was tacked on. This is surely a scam.

My understanding is that above 1,000 ruppees a tax of 8% applies and 12% above 2,000 rps. Less than 1,000 no luxury tax.

Can a Banglore member or anyone else clarify the tax situation?
Evil all its sin is still alive.

mm... then perhaps they might have a bogus registry and billing, just to over charge!

Call their BLUFF and just don't pay it.

If they want to Argue the Toss, ask them for Official Documentation to back up their claims.
