Are Services Provided By An Independent Journalist Liable To GST In India?

Q: Whether the services consisting of collecting or providing news items by an Independent or Freelance Journalist to any publication, liable to GST (Goods and Service Tax) in India? 

At the 14th GST Council meeting held at Srinagar, it was decided that "Services by way of collecting or providing news by an Independent Journalist" would be exempt from the levy of Goods and Service Tax (GST) in India. 

Accordingly, an Independent or Freelance Journalist providing the service of 'collecting news' to any publication (print, online or any other), would not be liable to pay GST on the services provided by him. 

Note that services provided by Independent Journalists enjoyed a similar exemption under the Service Tax regime.
