When you go out to eat at a restaurant, you might have noticed that the different taxes and charges in the bill outnumber items that you ordered. Now be prepared to find another entry to this already long list. A new cess has been implemented from 1 June, the Krishi Kalyan Cess, and it is being levied at the rate of 0.5% on all taxable services, including restaurant bills.
