Comedian Kiku Sharda who leaves audiences laughing every now and then with his hilarious jokes shared his very own Rahul Bose moment. Well, though not exactly! In a tweet posted by him, the comedian can be seen stating that he ordered room service for coffee and tea, and was charged 78,650/-, however, the truth is that Sarda was in Bali, Indonesia and so in Indian rupees, the entire amount converts to Rs 400 in total. Yet again, he left the fans and netizens laughing.

Back in July, Rahul Bose got a taste of unreasonable pricing at a high-end luxury hotel in Chandigarh. Bizarrely, Bose was charged Rs. 442 for two bananas after which he was left baffled. However, after the tweet went viral, the Excise and Taxation Department sent a three-member team and seized all records in connection with the exorbitant GST rates charged by the hotel.

Reportedly, the City Deputy Commissioner and the Taxation Commissioner Mandip Singh Brar ordered a probe into the matter after which the team paid a visit to the hotel. The officials have stated that it is not only a case of 'illegal and exorbitant charge of GST' but it is also a violation of the Consumer Protection Act.
After the incident went viral, the luxury hotel has been fined Rs 25,000 for violation of Section 11 of CGST, which is illegal collection of tax on an exempted item.
