In a new development to the matter, the Chandigarh administration on Wednesday ordered an investigation into the matter after actor Rahul's allegations, The Indian Express reports. Deputy Commissioner and Excise and Taxation Commissioner Mandip Singh Brar says a high-level investigation into the “illegal and exorbitant charge of GST” by the hotel would be conducted.

“Taking cognisance of the video and bill posted by the actor, I have ordered an investigation,” Brar told The Indian Express. “I have directed Assistant Excise and Taxation Commissioner Rajeev Chaudhary to conduct a thorough probe on how the hotel had charged GST on fresh fruits. Strict action will be taken if found guilty," He tells The Indian Express.

However, the hotel is yet to respond to the complaints.
