No GST will be imposed on the supply made by the Federal Government and State Government such as healthcare services provided by hospital and clinic, education services by primary and secondary school including tertiary education, issuance of passport by the Immigration Department, issuance of licences and permits by the Road Transport Department and etc.

Supplies by Statutory Bodies and Local Authorities

Supplies made by Statutory Bodies and Local Authorities will be subject to GST except supply in respect of its regulatory and enforcement functions such as issuing licenses and permits and etc.
