Sir, sorry to express, practical happening across Chennai metro is,if any death or birth there is a package despite government charges exist at cremation ground at hindu burial and cremation area. Minimum of that one day package would be around rs.20000.

For birth, minimum of 1 to 2 lakhs without any abnormalities.

My question is do we have any provisions to cover these kind of expences and whichbis inevitable that everyone aware.

It was good news to read GST collection at its best in Dec 20. There are yet few pockets which I believe are not complying. TV cable operators/distributors are a class in list. Vishin Israni.
