Is GST registration required for homestays providing accommodation through an ECOs, below threshold limit

Whether homestays providing accommodation through an Electronic Commerce Operator, below threshold limit are exempt from taking registration?

 

Notification No. 17/2017-Central Tax (Rate), has been issued making ECOs (Electronic Commerce Operator) liable for payment of GST in case of accommodation services provided in hotels, inns guest houses or other commercial places meant for residential or lodging purposes provided by a person having turnover below Rs. 20 lakhs (Rs. 10 lakhs in special category states) per annum and thus not required to take registration under section 22(1) of CGST Act. Such persons, even though they provide services through ECO, are not required to take registration in view of section 24(ix) of CGST Act, 2017.
