MY CLIENT IS HAVING ONE TANKER FOR THE PURPOSE OF TRANSPORTATION OF PETROL AND DIESEL FROM HINDUSTAN PETROLEUM CORPORATION TO HIS PETROL BUNK AND ALSO FOR THE OTHER BUNKS CAN HE PAY GST ON HIRE CHARGES RECEIVED OR IT IS EXEMPTED SERVICE PLEASE CLARIFY

In my view, Hire charges received is a receipt from the supply of transportation services. It is not relevant that the item transported falls under the NON-GST supply item.
However, Transportation of goods by road other than GTA services is exempted under GST. Under this provision - payment received against transportation of goods is not subject to GST.
