Restaurant chains to hike meal prices by 10% even as GST declines
Sabahat Contractor

Moneycontrol News

Startups in India’s food and beverage retail industry are planning to increase meal prices for customers even as the government is likely to bring down the rate of GST to 12 percent from 18 percent.

All cafe chains including Chaayos, Social, Smoke House Deli, Wow Momos told Moneycontrol that the food bill is likely to increase for customers by 8-10 percent.

Cafes say that without an Input Tax credit (ITC), the move to reduce GST rate will increase the final bill for consumers.

“Under the earlier tax regime, the tax on processed food was at 5 percent but now under GST, this has gone up to 12 percent. Taxes on many such inputs have gone up, so if we do not get an input credit, then the cost of running the restaurants will go up, leading to higher menu prices for customers,” said Riyaaz Amlani, CEO of Impresario Entertainment & Hospitality Pvt Ltd, that runs Social brand of restaurant cum coworking spaces.


Under the current 18 percent tax rate, restaurants get to claim on the taxes they pay on various things such as processed food, rent, electricity, and transportation.

However, with GST in effect, most restaurants were claiming the input tax credit from government alongside charging the customer an 18 percent tax on their food bills.

Many were delivering food levied at an 18 percent tax, which apparently prompted the government to reduce GST rate and cut the input tax credit.

“GST at 12 percent without ITC is detrimental for the industry and the consumer. Not only will it increase the cost for restaurant operators, it will also encourage the industry to work with unregistered suppliers. Removal of Input Tax Credit (ITC) will increase the cost for the customer,” said Nitin Saluja, co-founder of tea cafe chain Chaayos.

Started in 2012, Chaayos has raised about USD 7.3 million from Tiger Global and Powai Lake Ventures.

Before GST, restaurants were allowed an input tax credit on things such as food items, cutlery, etc during the ‘VAT cum service tax’ regime.

“The product prices will increase which could lead to a decline in consumption for industry and loss of customers. This will affect whole business and profitability of the business,” said Sagar Daryani, co-founder of Kolkata based Wow Momo, which has operations in most Indian metros.

Started in 2008, Wow Momo raised about USD 8.4 million from investors such as Bandhan Bank, Lightspeed Venture Partners, and Indian Angel Network.

“If ITC is removed my expansion plans for 10 cities will reduce to 5 cities because of more operational costs on us. I request the government to rethink about it as it will impact whole hospitality sector as a whole if the ITC is removed,” said Daryani.

Chaayos recommends leaving the GST and ITC untouched. “If the government wants to make it more affordable for the consumer, then it should be 12 percent with ITC,” says Saluja.

Under GST, taxes have increased on many of these inputs and hence companies claim that disallowing Input Tax Credit will lead to higher operational costs for restaurants, ultimately leading to a rise in the price of final products for consumers.

Under the GST regime, air-conditioned restaurants pay 18 percent GST on food. ITC includes all the professional services of a restaurant such as security, valet parking, electricity bills.

“If ITC is removed from GST it will increase the operating costs of the restaurant by 10 percent. This will be then added to the final payment of the customer’s bill,” says Amlani.

Backblaze’s unlimited backup service increases upload and restore speeds, adds file sharing and more

Backblaze is one of the few unlimited backup services standing — in part because of its prowess in securing its own hard drives and building its own cloud services. Today, the company launched version 5.0 of its service and desktop clients. This new version introduces faster backups and restores, as well as improved browsing speed, image previews on the restore page and a new file sharing feature backed by the company’s B2 Cloud Storage service Derma 21 hard sell.

The highlights here are clearly the increased speed and the new file sharing feature. Backblaze for Mac and PC now makes smarter decisions about how many simultaneous upload connections it can handle. On a slow connection, you don’t want to have to use too many parallel threads, but on a fast connection, you may want as many as possible. The company says that its service can now achieve backups of up to 100 Mbps, though in the infrastructure backwater that is most the U.S. in 2017, not everybody has access to these kinds of fast connections.

It’s worth noting that Backblaze founder and CEO Gleb Budman tells me that he remains fully committed to offering unlimited backups without any speed restrictions Derma 21 hard sell.

As for the new file sharing feature, Backblaze now allows its users to publicly share any of their backed up files through its B2 service. While this cloud storage service is mostly meant for developers, all B2 accounts come with 10GB/month of free storage and 1GB/day of free downloads, which should make it powerful enough for sharing photos and other files with friends and family. You do need a B2 account for this to work, but the sharing tools will walk you through setting one up if you don’t have one yet.

Backblaze charges $5/month for its personal backup service (or $50/year if you pre-pay) and $50/year per computer for its business plan Derma 21 hard sell.

The One Thing That Makes Love Work
You can’t walk down the street at this time of year without seeing a schmaltzy couple draped over each other or a window full of love hearts. Whether you like it or not, the trappings of St Valentines Day can be seen everywhere reenex.

Now, I’ll put my hands up right now and tell you that I’ve screwed up my fair share of relationships. I still get tongue-tied when I see a beautiful woman, I’ve pushed people away to protect myself and I’ve run round and round in circles wondering how things ’should’ be done.

Despite that, there’s a heap of things I do know about relationships. I know that it’s important to know what you really need from one; I know that you need to be in a place where you feel ready to be in a partnership with someone; I know you need to open up your baggage so that it doesn’t weigh you down or steer things in the wrong direction; I know that relationships aren’t about blaming someone else for what’s wrong or needing to be right and I know that the things you like and love about your partner are what matter, not what you don’t like.

But what I’ve also learned is that all of that stuff is useless without one, simple thing:

You have to be ready to let go and make it up as you go along.

I call this act of letting go “freefall”, because there’s a point where you just have to let yourself go; a point where you have to loosen your grip and let gravity take its course.

Love isn’t about game playing and it isn’t about logic, and all the relationship tips, advice, checks and balances mean nothing unless you agree to do this one thing reenex.

Loving someone is scary, confusing and unpredictable, and the catalyst to making a choice to freefall is a big bag full of courage. You have to trust yourself to feel your way through and you have to forget about the old rules you’ve set and all the “should’s” and “ought’s” that set you spinning.

Be willing to make it up as you go along. Be willing to let your heart play a bigger role. Be willing to admit that you don’t know what you’re doing and be willing to take a chance.

As far as love goes, we’re all in the same boat. Play from the heart reenex.
