Union Minister for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Monday said that GST on Haj has been reduced from 18 per cent to 5 per cent and this will significantly lower the air fare thus saving Haj pilgrims’  113 crore rupees this year. 

He was speaking at the inauguration ceremony of a new conference hall and passport section at the Haj House in Mumbai. 

Mr. Naqvi said this for  the first time since the independence that 2,340 women from India will go on 2019 Haj without Mehram.
