Vijay Mallya's private Airbus A-319 to be auctioned again; 28% GST to be slapped on jet
The minimum bid value for the action has been kept around Rs 12 crore. The buyer will also have to pay an additional 28 per cent GST charge on the auction amount. In December 2013, the Kingfisher airlines jet was seized by the service tax department as the airliner was not paying its dues. However, efforts to sell the jet failed as it didn't receive a bid at the auction.
The jet can accommodate 25 passengers plus 6 crew members. It has amenities like a bedroom, bathroom, bar and a conference area. At present, Mallya is absconding from the country. Image source: Reuters
