Mega Poker GST Policy
Under the GST laws, the Mega Poker app is classified as a “service” and is subject to a GST rate of 18%. This means that 18% of the rake (i.e., the commission charged by the app on each pot) is paid to the government as GST.
In addition to the GST on rake, the Mega Poker app is also subject to GST on the winnings of Indian users. The GST rate on winnings is 30%. This means that 30% of the winnings of Indian users is paid to the government as GST.
However, there is an important exemption to the GST on winnings. Winnings up to INR 10,000 are exempt from GST. This means that Indian users who win up to INR 10,000 on the Mega Poker app do not have to pay any GST on their winnings.
