18% for Paratha and 5% of Roti : GST rates riduculed in social media

The company called ID Fresh Food contended that its products should be treated in the same way as khakhra, plain chapati or roti under the law.
The Karnataka bench’s order comes after a Bengaluru-based ready-to-cook food maker sought the authority for more clarification on GST rates for variants of parotas.
