In accordance with a new Indian law that took effect on December 1, 2016, all electronically supplied products and services sold by non-Indian companies will be impacted by a new 15% service tax. In compliance with this new law, HostGator will be applying this tax to all products and services sold to Indian customers. You will see this charge reflected in your next billing statement.
If you are exempt from the Indian Service Tax, it’s important that you provide us with your registration number so we can reflect your exemption on your account. portal.hostgator.com/customer/settings#india_service_tax_reg_num/
